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.

Anton Brahm

At the top of the hill you can see a Grocer with the last of Brahm. Through Googling, it turned out it was Anton Brahm, who had a business at 420 Fuller Street, which is now High Street. That building is gone, though the house next door is still there, though modified.

Anton Brahm lived from 1847 to 1920. The Find A Grave entry lists him, along with his wife Teresa (1855-1907). And four children -- all died 1892, ages 3 to 14.

Further Googling found this newspaper article from 1892. Third page, on the left, toward the bottom.

"A six-year-old son of Anton Brahm, of Depot street, died Tuesday, of Diphtheria. Three other children of the same family have been down with the same disease, but are now better."

Snowball's chance

Still there, now a restaurant.
