Yosemite Machine Shop

Yosemite Machine Shop

I believe these are brand new 1936 Ford Model 51 trucks parked in front of the Yosemite Machine Shop (National Park Service) in the Yosemite Valley. Appears to be Department of the Interior license plates. This side of building is still in use by maintenance personnel. The other side of the building, which is out of sight on the right, houses the fire station and jail.

Adam's Pharmacy Before Ashworth's

Adam's Pharmacy Before Ashworth's

My grandparents bought this drugstore in 1957 from Mr. Adams (pictured). The back of the photograph reads: We're unsure- but this may have been Adams Drug Co in the 30's, 40's? We bought it in 1957 and fixtures like these + the tin ceiling were in it then. Ralph + Daphne Ashworth July 1997

My grandfather still works here, along with my uncle who now runs the business. My father, brother, and myself work upstairs of the drugstore (former Mason Lodge) running a chain of retail stores.

Location: Ashworth Drugs 105 W. Chatham St. Cary, NC 27511

Horseback Riders: 1958

Horseback Riders: 1958

My brother (front) and I are "horseback riding" our father at Christmastime 1958, in Connecticut. We are armed with decidedly urban-looking weapons despite my brother's rustic cowboy hat. One of my uncles (seated) may have been consulting the TV Guide in the lower right corner, for the week of December 20-26, 1958, to decide what to watch on the gigantic--for its time--television set.

Photograph by my grandfather, Edward Butler, whose work has previously been featured on Shorpy. Scanned February 2021 from a 35mm Kodachrome slide.
