About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

The Egg Men

Garret Sr., Garret, Jr. and Maurice Nelligan were also egg buyers. Their operation was at the corner of Second and B Streets. Today there is no evidence of the building. Maurice was an Buick agent in 1918.

Graham Bros.

The hub caps, radiator badge and truck cab all indicate it's a Graham Brothers truck. To be fair, the body (cab) and engine were made by Dodge.
