Stoves to Go: 1901

Stoves to Go: 1901

Chelsea, Michigan, circa 1901. "Glazier Stove Company tramway." Much as the swallows have their Capistrano, so do Shorpyites eventually find themselves back at the Glazier Stove Works. Detroit Publishing glass negative. View full size.

Buffalo Scale Company

I really love all the neat things in this picture like the Buffalo Scales under and beside the tracks. It appears that a rail went along side the scale so you could unload things, weigh them and then re-load them. I am sure there is a scale mechanism beneath that wooden platform.

Wheelbarrow rides the rails.

Neat idea, just don't miss stepping on each RR Tie.

Hello in there

Another open window with another person looking out. It's almost like being a Peeping Tom, a century after all the action has taken place.

Steam whistle

I love the steam whistle over top of the building on the left. A favorite at lunch time or the end of the day.
