This is a photo I found in one of my dresser drawers. I own my great uncle and great aunt's home, and I bought the house with everything in it. I stumbled across this garage photo I found very fascinating. The man with the name "Kirsch" labeled would be a great great grandfather or uncle. I need to find out more information, but it is still an interesting photo of a very early garage. Any comments about exactly what they are repairing on the auto?

    The over head shafts are called line shafts, they most likely would have had equipment such as a milling machine, lathe, drill press ( you can make out large drill bits just below the word Deloe in the photo). Very nice photo.
