Everyone came to town to see the delivery of the new ice box to the Medlock Grocery store.

The grocer is being run out of town because of high prices and bad meat.

Auction perhaps?

That is a telephone pole. The early telephone lines were individual 2 wire circuits with insulators at every crossarm. In areas with many telephones such as business districts, there would be many crossarms. Later the cables were developed with up to 3600 individual lines in one cable.

Along the cross street you can see an example of an early telephone cable which is suspended by rings from a steel messenger cable. Those old cables had lead sheath around the individual pairs which were insulated with paper.

Can you spot any women in the crowd ? Whatever was going on, it must have been a guy thing.

I think those are just men, dressed as women. There are always a few in every crowd ! ;-)

Yes, that is phone, and THAT is the exchange pole. If you look closely, you will see the heavy
lead sheathed cable on the carrier coming toward the photographer (from pole to left center
of photo) carrying the lines into the exchange building where the switchboards and operators
were located.

Charley,

At least we know the scene wasn't a hanging. Every old picture I've ever seen of a hanging audience seems to include scads of women and children.

Never did understand that. Maybe moms trying to give their kids an object lesson to make them behave.

I think it's a hanging?? When I was a kid I saw a black man hanging in a tree in Caney Kansas. My cousin said he would not step off the sidewalk for a white woman?? I'll never forget that. Don

Speaking of the Wedloch grocery store, There was a town with that name and they had a maternity hospital just outside of the city limits.
