Date of origin:

Type: Negative

Size: 3 1/2 x 2 7/16

Condition: Very Good



Miscellaneous Info.:

A building or small, enclosed house is on top of wheels like a wagon. The building has a roof, door and windows. The bottom part of the building is made of brick. There are several people in the building: a man with a child sitting on his lap and a woman behind in the door, two people in the first window, a person in the second and third windows, and a man in a suit standing beside the wagon. There are flowers and vines around the doorway and windows on the wagon. There are names written at the bottom of the negative, but it’s cut off and can’t be read.

Other Info.: There is a sign to the right in the negative that says “Own Your” and the initials CE. Not sure if this is hand-written or part of the original photo.
