(2/21/2014) Note — This blog is on hiatus for several weeks while I fix a bunch of things. During this time there will be some problems with images. I will try to post once in a while, but there is a lot of work involved so I'm afraid you won't be hearing much from Ainsworth probably until late April.

Scholler Bros. Blacksmith Shop

We got just a glimpse of it a while back. Here are some better photos.

Neither image is dated. I wouldn't even try to guess about the first one. Based on the car in the second one, I'm inclined to think it's probably from the first decade of the 20th century.

But we do have some dated ones! This one is from 1902:

And this one was taken on June 20, 1926.

Scholler 1926

According to the caption on the display, these people are: Mrs. Calvin Scholler, Calvin Scholler, Rudolph Scholler, Robert Scholler, Isabelle Dieppe and Josephine Bracken. (It doesn't say "left to right" or anything. We have to guess.)

This one purports to show an unnamed salesman in 1927.

They must have been very heavily into Maytag, to have a delivery truck painted with the Maytag logo.

This newspaper clipping tells of the historic building's demise.

Post Tribune Scholler

… It would have been nice if someone had noted the date of the newspaper.


I will have a little more about the Scholler family soon.
