    Born in Waukegan, IL in 1871 grandpa did it all. With his horse and wagon he delivered groceries for Conrad BrothersGrocery. In the photography studio he even had time for "ghosts". At one point he was a conductor on one of the C&M Electric routes.

    A card carrying member of the Carpenter's Union he was a skilled wood worker. Later when he moved to Orlando,FL he was a Pharmacist. WOW!

      Nice images. Spiritual images were very popular in the late 19th century. They have a large collector following and bring very good money!
