Earl Erdner's 1976 Mercury station wagon parked in front of one of his "Busy Corner" locations in either Salem or Gloucester County, New Jersey, late 1970s. 8"x10" photo I purchased at an antique shop.

All the "Erdner's Busy Corner" buildings still exist, but the business is long gone.

Eternity Carriage

Eternity Carriage

This photo was given to me by my then girlfriend about 15 years ago. She worked at a nursing home and had found it in the effects of a patient who had passed away with no family.

Location and photographer unknown. I'm guessing the wagon belonged to a traveling preacher. From memory I think the print is about 3"x6". If I can find it again, I will try to scan it at a higher resolution.

The Motor Shop, front counter, Barnegat, NJ, 1926. This was my great Uncle Sam's auto repair shop. He is the one at left. I'm not sure who the one is at right. He may be one of his brothers. 5"x7" photo purchased at an antique shop, which ironically is in the building next door to this one. This building now houses a flooring and carpet business.
