I was thru Sandusky the other day and that crew is still there!
I Googled W.H. Homberger Contracting and they must have been a sizeable company in 1921-22 they are mentioned in many periodicals of the day and many road contracts.
As the sign on the machine says: W.H. Homberger - Up to Date- Contractor.
We live 12 miles south of Sandusky & run there a lot in one of our Ts. Dennis I wish I knew you were this way..woulda loved to meet and BS about our cars! Maybe Jim Riedy will recognize this spot...he's lived in the city far more than I. Last few years the streets have been horrible but the city is finally on a street repaving program. Thanks for the neat pic Jay!
I am guessing that is Steam powered from the tank and stack at the rear.
Steam for sure Rich. Pretty sure that's a vertical boiler as the water glass and steam guage are visible in the photo. Another great photo by the way Jay,.....harold
That could be Hayes Ave. looking north,from Tyler st. that store would now be the Golden rose florist and the whole left side would be Firelands Regional medical center. Jim
How many yards of concrete can you mix in that little mixer?
As many as you want! :^)
In the early twenties when my dad came to the big city from little one-horse Sedan, his first job was pouring concrete on the new highway between Arkansas City and Winfield. The arrival of the automobile brought a boom in the paving industry.
