Laborers at Crawfordsville Electric in 1910

A new donation arrived recently with some unseen images of Crawfordsville. In the photo below, these men can be seen next to a train and possibly helping to "lay" more track. During this time the electric company was also building a smoke stack (seen in the lower picture) and retaining wall. Sugar Creek is in the background. Otis Stephens was one of the workers, but is not pictured here.
If you recognize anyone, please call the Reference Dept. 362-2242 x 117

Special thanks to Dave Stephens for providing the pictures.
