Circa 1899. “Ekin, L.M.” Lorian Moreau Ekin, stenographic prodigy, and his new bride, the former Martha Lucile Agnew, last seen here. 5×7 inch glass negative from the C.M. Bell portrait studio in Washington, D.C


San Francisco, 1921. “Cadillac touring car.” A well-worn example (equipped with Horse Shoe Cord tires and a fold-away steering wheel) at the address also seen here. The subliminal message in this image is that certain things that are a habit can also be a joy. For extra credit: What things? (The answer, discerned by our sharp-eyed commenters, is: Dinnerware.) 5×7 glass negative
