Cummings Auto, c. 1914

Our image collection is extensive, but  there is so much of our county's history for which we have no photographs. However, we recently received a photograph taken in the early 20th century -- from an angle we have not seen before. This photograph looks west on Pike Street in downtown Crawfordsville. The intersection of Washington Street is in the background, just beyond the church (St. Bernard's), where Chase Bank stands now. The photograph features Cummings Auto Company.

The photograph was donated to CDPL by Randy Cummings. Forest M. Cummings had written on the back of this photograph: "115 East Pike Street, Crawfordsville, Indiana. My grandfather, Forest Franklin Cummings seated in car on the right, smoking cigarettes. 1914. Note license plate on left."
