An extraordinary and classic graphic novel celebrating the Big Apple, from the master of American comics art.

 

With an unparalleled eye for stories and expressive illustration, Will Eisner, the master and pioneer of American comics art, presents one of his renowned celebrations of the Big Apple. No illustrator evoked the melancholy duskiness of New York City as expressively as Eisner, who knew the city from the bottom up.

 

The Building is a story filled with ghosts, and a testament to our greatest human qualities—a deeply moving chronicle of a city building and the people who inhabited it.

That's my first shot of my bag since I succumbed to the charm of Timbuk2. The fact is that I initially did not want a Timbuk2, but Crumpler, which was my initial choice didn't have bags that small. So after a long search I decided to take a second look at Timbuk2. It turned out that the initial design, which I didn't like at all was changed. Before the Timbuk2 bags were a big stuff-it-all area and a small pouch kind of hanging above that, which were the smaller pockets. I examined very carefully their bags online (yes, believe it or not, there is no store in Zurich, Switzerland officially distributing them). I fell in love with the new X-small design and the possibility to customise the colours.

 

Actually what was my primary goal is to have a very small but highly functional bag, which while limiting the amount of things I lug around will allow easy access to every item I manage to stuff in it.

 

The above might look much, but it really doesn't feel like this when it's in the bag and you really have to see my earlier bags if you think this is heavy.

 

Oh, iPad owners note this - your iPad will perfectly fit in that back (slash) pocket of the X-small Timbuk2 bags, even if it is in a small sleeve (mine, a Tucano, is not shown on the above picture).

 

So here is what I ordered:

Custom Messenger

size: X-small

ballistic nylon spinach / ballistic nylon limeade / ballistic nylon blue

binding: navy

logo: navy

liner: orange

slash pocket

reflector tabs

Would love if you like, or fave the picture or if you link externally to it to leave a short comment on what you like about it.

From one of our greatest novelists comes this luminous portrait of the world’s first literary rock star.

 

Acclaimed biographer of James Joyce Edna O’Brien has written an intimate biography that suits her fiery and charismatic subject. She follows Byron from the dissipations of Regency London to the wilds of Albania and the Socratic pleasures of Greece and Turkey, culminating in his meteoric rise to fame at the age of twenty-four on the publication of Childe Harold. With her prismatic eye and novelistic style, O’Brien eerily captures the spirit of the man and creates an indelible portrait of Byron that explodes the Romantic myth. From his escapades with John Edleston, the fourteen-year-old Cambridge choir boy, to those with a galaxy of women that included his half-sister, his wife of one year, and the Italian countess who forsook her satyr-like husband for “the peer of England and its greatest poet,” Byron scandalized the world and inspires “Byronmania” to this day. Byron, as brilliantly rendered by O’Brien, is the poet as rebel, imaginative and lawless, and defiantly immortal. MORE

c1910 postcard view of Main Street looking north from the courthouse square in downtown Rushville, Indiana. This scene included pedestrians and a bicyclist as well as parked automobiles and bicycles. The photographer was standing on the northwest corner of the courthouse square and looking north through the Second Street intersection.

 

The brick building at the left edge of this scene was on the northwest corner of the Second Street intersection. The 1908 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set for Rushville shows a drugstore on that corner (201 North Main Street) and a bank next door (205 North Main Street). A barely visible mortar and pestle sign hung on the corner of the building. This was the traditional symbol for pharmacies. The word BANK was printed on the awning next door. The sign on the corner of the building above the drugstore awnings advertised STEVENS and CARSON LAWYERS. In another (earlier?) postcard view of this corner, that sign advertised Stevens and Nipp Lawyers.

 

A 1902 Indiana business directory¹ listed The People’s Bank at 203 North Main Street. This was probably a listing error. The 1908 map set shows a stairway entrance (203 North Main Street) between the drugstore and the bank. It probably led to the attorneys’ offices upstairs. Online references identify John M. Stevens, Albert C. Stevens and Cary Carson as Rushville attorneys early in the 20th century. The 1902 directory listed only John M. Stevens among this group and his office was at another address at that time. The only listing found for Nipp was a 1915 listing² for the Nipp Insurance & Realty Co. The 1913 Sanborn™ map set shows plans had been developed to replace this brick building with a new fireproof structure that an unidentified bank would occupy.

 

The small sign by the bicycles in front of the bank advertised ___ ___ CIGARS. The 1908 map set shows a pool hall and cigars business north of the bank (207 and 209 North Main Street), but the directories didn’t identify the business name or the proprietor.

 

The sign on the third building north of the corner advertised FRANK WILSON CLOTHIER. This was 211 North Main Street. The 1902 directory listed L. F. Wilson in the “CLOTHING” category with a business at 201 North Main Street. The 1915 directory listed Frank Wilson as a clothier and hatter.

 

The sign painted at the top of the next building north (213 North Main Street) advertised JOHNSON DRUGS AND WALL PAPER. Fred B. Johnson was a Rushville druggist in the early part of the 20th century and was listed in the 1902 business directory at this address. The sign on the third floor of that building identified the location of the P.O.S. of A. (Patriotic Order Sons of America) Hall.

 

The 99c STORE sign was on the building at 219 and 221 North Main Street. The 1908 and 1913 Sanborn™ map sets show a books and stationery store at this location. . The 1902 directory listed the boots and shoes business of John Sparks at 219 North Main Street and the W. A. Addison business at 221 North Main Street in the “CHINA STORES” category. The 1915 business list included The Gift Store (proprietor R. H. Jones) selling books, stationery, china and fancy goods in Rushville, but failed to include an address.

 

At the northeast corner of the intersection (104 East Second Street), the name RUSHVILLE NATIONAL BANK was carved into the building’s limestone façade. The 1908 map set shows a boots and shoes business in a brick building on that corner and a jeweler at 206 North Main Street. The 1913 map set shows a bank had replaced both of those businesses. A vault had been added and the building had a new stone façade. This building is still standing on that corner. Across the street most of the buildings north of Second Street, except for the one on the northwest corner, are still in use as well.

 

The fixture in the foreground near the right edge of this scene appears to be a cast iron water fountain. It and the nearby lamppost were on the northwest corner of the Rush County Courthouse Square.

c1908 postcard view of the interior of the A. J. Smith & Son clothing store in Lebanon, Indiana. Many men’s hats were on display and hat boxes were stacked along the wall. The store owners mailed the postcard to O. M. Zigler in nearby Thorntown.

 

A 1902 central Indiana business directory¹ listed a Smith and Dodson business selling hats, clothing and men’s furnishings in Lebanon, but it isn’t clear if this was a predecessor to Smith & Son. The Smith & Dodson store was located at 119 West Main Street. The 1909 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set for Lebanon confirms a clothing store at that address when that map set was being prepared.

Kenneth Grahame's classic comes alive in a gorgeous, annotated homage to this beloved masterpiece.

 

An instant bestseller on its initial publication in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has become one of the greatest books in children's literature. Hundreds of illustrations, including famous images by E. H. Shepard and Arthur Rackham, illuminate the adventures of Mole, Mr. Toad, Badger, Otter, River Rat, and all our other favorite characters. In addition to remarkable notes on automobiles (Toad drove an Armstrong Hardcastle Special Eight), picnics, Gypsies, caravans, old English mansions, peculiar dukes, and even modern manifestations (Disney's "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride"), scholar Annie Gauger has uncovered extraordinary new material on Kenneth Grahame, his troubled family life, and the origins of the story. Her preface puts Grahame's work in historical and literary context, and she provides biographies of all the illustrators. With a stirring introduction by Brian Jacques, The Annotated Wind in the Willows promises to become the authoritative edition of this classic work, published just in time to honor the author's 150th birthday.

A Sidelong View of Science and Nature

 

"Lively writing about science and nature depends less on the offering of good answers, I think, than on the offering of good questions," said David Quammen in the original introduction to Natural Acts. For more than two decades, he has stuck to that credo. In this updated version of his first essay collection, Quammen's lively curiosity leads him from New Mexico to Romania, from the Congo to the Amazon, asking questions about mosquitoes (what are their redeeming merits?), dinosaurs (how did they change the life of a dyslexic Vietnam vet?), and cloning (can it save endangered species?).

 

This revised and expanded edition returns to print Quammen's best-loved "Natural Acts" columns, which first appeared in Outside magazine in the early 1980s, and includes recent pieces such as "Planet of Weeds," an influential Harper's cover story. The new Natural Acts is an eye-opening journey that will please both Quammen fans and newcomers to his work.

Finding My Place at the New Orleans Table

 

A cocktail is more than a segue to dinner when it’s a Sazerac, an anise-laced drink of rye whiskey and bitters indigenous to New Orleans. For Wisconsin native Sara Roahen, a Sazerac is also a fine accompaniment to raw oysters, a looking glass into the cocktail culture of her own family—and one more way to gain a foothold in her beloved adopted city.

 

Roahen’s stories of personal discovery introduce readers to New Orleans’ well-known signatures—gumbo, po-boys, red beans and rice—and its lesser-known gems: the pho of its Vietnamese immigrants, the braciolone of its Sicilians, and the ya-ka-mein of its street culture. By eating and cooking her way through a place as unique and unexpected as its infamous turducken, Roahen finds a home. And then Katrina. With humor, poignancy, and hope, she conjures up a city that reveled in its food traditions before the storm—and in many ways has been saved by them since.

A bold, groundbreaking work that provides the definitive answer to the persistent question: Why didn’t more Jews flee Nazi Europe?

 

Flight from the Reich is a story about people at a time of crisis. As persecution, war, and deportation savaged their communities, Jews tried to flee Nazi Europe through legal and clandestine routes. In their multifaceted tale of Jewish refugees during and after the Nazi era, Debórah Dwork and Robert Jan van Pelt braid the private and public realms, personal memory and official history. They probe the challenges faced by German Jewish refugees; the dispute among the Swiss on allowing Jews to cross their border; the dangers braved by covert guides who helped the hunted out of occupied France; and the creation of postwar displaced person camps, which have much to tell us about refugee camps today. Grounded in archival research throughout Europe and America, hundreds of oral histories, and thousands of newly discovered letters, Flight from the Reich shows how the lives of people thread together to form history.

A Novel of the Bronte Sisters

 

Enigmatic, intelligent, and fiercely independent, Emily Brontë refuses to bow to the conventions of her day: she is distrustful of marriage, prefers freedom above all else, and walks alone at night on the moors above the isolated rural village of Haworth. But Emily’s life, along with the rest of the Brontë family, is turned upside down with the arrival of an idealistic clergyman named William Weightman. Weightman champions poor mill workers’ rights, mingles with radical labor agitators, and captivates Haworth—and the Brontës especially—with his energy and charm. An improbable friendship between Weightman and Emily develops into a fiery but unconsummated love affair—and when tragedy strikes, the relationship continues, like the love story at the heart of Wuthering Heights, beyond the grave.

 

Denise Giardina, whose fiction has been described as “brilliant. . . heart-wrenching, tough and tender” (Los Angeles Times Book Review), writes a stirring story about faith, passion, longing, and romantic solitude.

c1910 postcard view of pedestrians and businesses in downtown Rushville, Indiana. The photographer was standing at the northwest corner of the courthouse square and looking northwest. This was the intersection of North Main and West Second Streets. According to the 1908 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set for Rushville, a drugstore (201 North Main Street and a bank (205 North Main Street) occupied the brick building on the corner.

 

The large sign on the south side of that building advertised FRANK WOLCOTT, THE COURT HOUSE DRUGGIST. That sign also advertised PAINTS, KODAK SUPPLIES, TOILET ARTICLES and CIGARS. Other signs near the drug store entrance advertised COCA COLA, PATENT MEDICINES, KODAKS and CIGARS. The sign standing on the sidewalk advertised ICE CREAM SODA and FURNAS ICE CREAM. Frank E. Wolcott was listed as a Rushville druggist in 1905 and 1908 directories of druggists.¹

 

Smaller signs on the second floor of that building advertised E. M. OSBORN MERCHANT TAILOR and the SEXTON & SPARKS LAW OFFICE. The stairway to these offices (203 North Main Street) was located between the drugstore and the bank. A 1901 online reference lists Will Morris Sparks as a graduate of Depauw University and a practicing attorney at Sexton & Sparks in Rushville. His partner was Gates Sexton. A 1902 business directory² listed both of these attorneys at the 203 North Main Street address. E. M. Osborn was listed in the 1902 directory, but his business address was 212 North Main Street at the time.

 

A BANK sign was leaning against the front of the building in this scene. The awning appears to have had BANK printed on the fringe. The 1913 Sanborn™ map set shows that plans had been developed to replace this brick building with a new fireproof structure that a bank would occupy.

 

The awning on the second building north of the intersection (207 and 209 North Main Street) advertised BILLIARDS & POOL. Both of the Rushville map sets from this era show a pool and cigars business at that location. Both map sets also show a clothing store in the next building north (211 North Main Street) where the awning advertised CLOTHING and the sign above advertised CLOTHIER. The 1902 directory listed L. F. Wilson in the “CLOTHING” category at 201 North Main Street. A 1915 book³ listed him as a clothier and hatter.

 

The awning on the next building north (213 North Main Street) advertised DRUGS. The sign at the top of the building advertised the JOHNSON DRUGS and WALL PAPER business. A utility pole partially blocked the sign above the entrance, but the sign appears to advertise the JOHNSON DRUG STORE. (Fred B. Johnson was a Rushville druggist in the early part of the 20th century.) The north half of that same building (217 North Main Street) housed a hardware store according to both of the Sanborn™ map sets. The 1902 directory listed C. F. Edgerton as the proprietor of a hardware business at that location. The building had two bay windows on the second floor and an IORM (Improved Order of Red Men) sign was hanging from the balcony on the third floor. The sign and the awning on the next building to the north (219 and 221 North Main Street) both advertised a 99c STORE. Both Sanborn™ map sets show a books and stationery store at this location. The awning on the next building north (223 and 225 North Main Street) is unreadable, but both map sets show a dry goods business at that location next to the alley.

c1910 postcard view of North Main Street in downtown Rushville, Indiana. The street was not paved. Several people were on the sidewalk and a couple of horse-drawn vehicles were parked at the curb. The photographer was standing on the sidewalk north of Second Street and facing northwest toward the west side of North Main Street.

 

The 1908 Sanborn:tm: fire insurance map set shows the building at the left edge of this scene as the third building (211 North Main Street) north of Second Street. The awning advertised FRANK WILSON. The sign above that awning advertised FRANK WILSON CLOTHIER. Several hats were displayed in a window and the sign below that window advertised FRANK WILSON HATTER. A 1902 business directory¹ listed L. F. Wilson in the “CLOTHING” category at 201 North Main Street. A 1915 book² listed him as a clothier and hatter.

 

The second building from the left was the ____ KING Building. It was built in 1883 and was home to the local I.O.R.M. (Improved Order of Red Men) tribe. An Indian statue stood next to the second floor balcony. One of the second-floor windows had the name HACKLEMAN painted on it. The aforementioned 1915 book listed Frank G. Hackleman as a physician in Rushville, but doesn’t include the location of his office. The 1908 and 1913 map sets show a drug store (213 North Main Street) and a hardware store (217 North Main Street) on the first floor of that building. The nearest awning advertised JOHNSON DRUG [STORE]. JOHNSON’S DRUG STORE was also painted on both display windows. (Fred B. Johnson was a Rushville druggist in the early part of the 20th century.) A boy was leaning against the utility pole in front of the drugstore and a dog was looking into the drugstore through the screen door. Bicycles stood in a rack in front of the hardware store. Nearby, two push lawnmowers, a roll of fencing and a ladder were displayed for sale.

 

The sign on the next building north (221 North Main Street) advertised the 99c STORE. The 1908 and 1913 map sets show a books and stationery store at this address. Next door (223-225 North Main Street), the awning fringe advertised WINSHIP DRY GOODS, NOTIONS & CARPETS. The sign beside the store entrance advertised JOHN _. WINSHIP CLOAKS, SUITS AND SKIRTS. The 1902 directory listed Winship & Abercrombie under the “DRY GOODS” category at 223 W. [sic] Main Street. Both map sets show a dry goods and carpets business at this location. The map sets also show an exterior stairway in the alley on the north side of the building. It led to offices on the second floor. This might explain the WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH AND CABLE OFFICE sign at the corner of the building.

 

Across the alley, the first business (227 North Main Street) was a grocery. Baskets of fruits and/or vegetables were displayed in front of the store. The name on the awning is unclear, but may be J. Kelly, Jr. He was listed in the 1915 book as a grocer at this location. The 1902 directory listed Riley and Kelly in the “GROCERS” category at this address. The other half of that building (231 North Main Street) housed a confectionery according to the 1908 and 1913 map sets. (The 1902 directory listed C. H. Jones as a baker and confectioner doing business at 321 North Main Street, but that was the location of the Rushville Cooperative Telephone Co. in 1908. The digits may have been transposed.) A sign on the third floor identified the location of the F.O.E. (Fraternal Order of Eagles) Lodge.

 

The next business north (233 North Main Street) should be a jewelry business according to both map sets. The 1902 directory listed F. A. Abercrombie as a jeweler at this address; the 1915 book listed the Abercombie [sic] Brothers as jewelers and opticians at this address. That book also listed L. E. Ging with a Singer Sewing Machine business at that same address. However, the jeweler’s trade symbol (a clock in this case?) and the SINGER SEWING MACHINE sign appear to be located farther north in front of the building at 235-237-239 North Main Street. The 237 address was for the stairway to the second floor and these signs appear to be at the base of that stairway.

 

The next awning north was at 235 North Main Street and had C. H. JONES printed on it. The 1908 map set shows a bakery at this location. As noted above, the 1902 directory listed Jones’ bakery and confectionery business at 321 North Main Street, but this may have been an error. Jones may have been the owner of the confectionery business at 231 North Main Street and the bakery at 235 North Main Street.

 

The name on the retracted awning next door (239 North Main Street) is unclear, but the 1902 directory and the 1915 book listed the Hargrove & Mullin drugstore at that address. Plus, the sign on the nearby utility pole advertised TICKETS FOR THE RUSHVILLE CHAUTAUQUA ON SALE AT HARGROVE & MULLIN. A 1908 directory³ listed Raymond C. Hargrove and Bert A Mullin as druggists in Rushville. Hargrove & Mullin were also the publishers of this postcard.

 

The next building north (241-243-245 North Main Street) contained a millinery business and a grocery according to both the 1908 and 1913 map sets. The word MILLINERY was printed on the retracted awning north of the drug store. The 1902 directory listed Mrs. Harriet Plough under the “MILLINERY” category at 243 North Main Street. That directory also listed the Havens Bros. as grocers at 245 North Main Street.

 

On the northwest corner at Third Street (301 North Main Street), the sign on the side of the building advertised the __EKS MEAT business. The 1908 and 1913 map sets show a meat business at this location. The lower sign on that building included PAID FOR HIDES. The 1902 directory included a listing for U. L. Weeks at 301 North Main Street under the MEAT MARKETS category.

The sky is falling for the Caspers, a family of cowards: for Jonathan, a paleontologist, searching in vain for a prehistoric giant squid; for his wife, Madeline, an animal behaviorist with a failing experiment; for their daughter, Amelia, a disappointed teenage revolutionary; for her younger sister, Thisbe, on a frustrated search for God; and for grandfather Henry, who wants to disappear, limiting himself to thirteen words a day, then twelve, then eleven, until he will speak no more. Each fears uncertainty and the possibilities that accompany it. When Jonathan and Madeline suddenly decide to separate, this nuclear family is split, each member forced to confront his or her own cowardice, finally coming to appreciate the cloudiness of the modern age. With wit and humor, The Great Perhaps pre-sents a revealing look at anxiety, ambiguity, and the need for complicated answers to complex questions.

c1910 postcard view of downtown Lebanon, Indiana. This view was looking southeast from the tower at the west end of the Boone County Courthouse. The 1909 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set for Lebanon gives the tower height as 60 feet. The businesses in the foreground were on the south side of the courthouse square.

 

The white building at the left edge of this scene is the Farmer’s State Bank Building that still stands on the southeast corner at Main and Meridian Streets (101-103 East Main Street). The small wooden structure that appears to be on the roof of the bank building was probably on the City Hall/Fire Department at 109-111 East Main Street.

 

The 1909 map set shows a dwelling south of the bank and then an undertaking business on the northeast corner at South Street. The church on the southeast corner of that intersection was the M. E. Church. The tall blue structure beyond the M. E. Church was the 80-foot-tall standpipe at the Lebanon waterworks. It was located on the north side of Elm Street east of East Street and the C. C. C. & St. L. (Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis) Railroad crossing.

 

A few of the businesses on Main Street are identifiable in this scene. The M. R. VOORHIS HARNESS sign advertised the second business west of Meridian Street (103 West Main Street. The 1909 map set shows a harness business at that location with a confectionery business in the other half of the building (on the corner at 101 West Main Street). The Morris & Rigsby grocery was on that corner when a 1902 business directory¹ was published. West of the harness shop, a sign above the display windows advertised MATTHEWS and DAVIS. The 1909 map set shows a boots and shoes business at this location (105 West Main Street). The 1902 directory listed the City Bakery, Restaurant and Confectionery at this address.

 

Two signs hung from the next building west (107 West Main Street). The over-sized pocket watch was a trade sign for a jeweler and the 1909 map set shows a jewelry business at that location. In addition, the 1902 directory listed a jeweler by the name of George L. Spahr doing business at that address. The other sign advertised PIANOS and included a name that is unclear, but may be _. _. STEVENS. The 1902 directory listed B. F. Wren under the “Musical Merchandise” category at this address. The directory also listed The Stevens Brothers (J. E. and W. W.) under the “Pianos and Organs” business category. However, their business was at 212 West Main Street at that time.

 

The next building west (109 West Main Street) has an unclear name at the top that may be STANLEY. The 1909 map set shows a dry goods business at this location. The 1902 directory includes a Stanley & Son business under the “Dry Goods” category, but their business address was 125 North Meridian Street. The trees are hiding the two businesses between the dry goods store and the alley. Those businesses were a clothing store and a meat market according to the 1909 map set. The 1902 directory listed a millinery shop called The Emporium (Mrs. E. A. Gregory, proprietor) at 111 West Main Street and the Trips & Bleistein meat business at 113 West Main Street. The latter business had a sausage factory, rendering room and smoke house in the back of the building.

In this masterful graphic novel, comics pioneer Will Eisner weaves a darkly humorous tale of three Jewish-American families joined in wedlock: the old-money Arnheims, the more humble, midwestern Obers, and the upstart Kayns. At its heart, the novel is a study in the disappointments of "good marriages." With characteristic irony and empathy, Eisner perfectly captures the subtle differences in class and culture between the families and the perils of a parent's best intentions.

How Indian War Transformed Early America

 

Winner of the Bancroft Prize

 

Relying on meticulous original archival research, historian Peter Silver uncovers a fearful and vibrant early America in which Lutherans and Presbyterians, Quakers, Catholics and Covenanters, Irish, German, French, and Welsh all sought to lay claim to a daunting countryside. Such groups had rarely intermingled in Europe, and the divisions between them only grew—until, with the arrival of the Seven Years’ War, thousands of country people were forced to flee from Indian attack.

 

Silver reveals in vivid and often chilling detail how easily a rhetoric of fear can incite entire populations to violence. He shows how it was only through the shared experience of fearing and hating Indians that these Europeans, once irreconcilable, were finally united under the ideal of religious and ethnic tolerance that has since defined the best in American life.

1913 postcard view of a flooded Main Street in Rushville, Indiana. The photographer was standing in the middle of Main Street and looking south-southwest toward the Third Street intersection. The Flatrock River had overflowed its banks during the Great Flood of 1913. That event affected cities across much of Indiana and surrounding states. In this scene, a few people were wading through the floodwaters and a horse-drawn delivery wagon was stopped while the photograph was being taken. A note on the back of this postcard identified the man in the foreground as Mr. Wagnor (misspelled?), but provided no other information.

 

The sign above the store entrance (251 North Main Street) on the southwest corner of that intersection advertised LYTLE DRUGS. The large sign on the north side of the building advertised LYTLE’S DRUG STORE. Thomas W. Lytle was the druggist. He was listed as a Rushville pharmacist in a druggist directory as early as 1908, but wasn’t listed in 1905.¹ The business on the northwest corner (301 North Main Street) of the intersection was a meat market when the 1913 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set was being prepared. A 1902 Indiana business directory² included a listing for U. L. Weeks at 301 North Main Street under the “MEAT MARKETS” category. Another postcard view of Main Street shows part of a large advertising sign on the north side of the Weeks business.

Cover of Troy Park by Dame Edith Sitwell. London : Duckworth, [1925] PR6037.I8 T7 1925

c1908 postcard view of the interior of the Jackson and McDaniel store in Lebanon, Indiana. A large bunch of bananas was hanging above the counter at the left and canned goods filled the shelves. Three of the men were wearing the same style cap. All three were also wearing vests and ties. The two young men in the back may have been employees while the gentleman in the hat may have been a customer.

 

A 1902 central Indiana business directory¹ listed The Cash Grocery with Storm and Jackson as proprietors. It was located at 104 North Lebanon Street. The 1909 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set for Lebanon doesn’t identify the type of business at that address. That grocery may have had no relationship to the Jackson and McDaniel business.
