Wabash Machine Works - see Birch Brothers

Warner - "One price Clothier Corner of Washington & Main Streets" - horsedrawn wagon - watering the streets of C'ville - horse is beautiful but is a shadow of himself :( This pic is probably taken on what today is Market & Washington (southwest side). D.S. Warner (I think it is L. S. for Leopold S.) was a charter member of the Clothier's of Indiana from Crawfordsville. -- this too may be the same Water Wagon but with something different (? Insurance or Insurance ?) - this is a really bad rendition of a parade? You can see the corner of the court house monument and really think the pic may be turned sideways

-- Source: Gospel Messenger Offering 1888 Bro. T. C. Dunbar, of the White church, Montgomery Co., Ind., under date of Feb. 19, writes: "Bro. Michael Flory came and opened a series of meetings on the evening of Feb. 1, closing the 17th; in all delivering twenty-three sermons. He did not shun to declare the whole counsel of God, neither is he ashamed of the gospel of Christ. As an immediate result, eight precious souls were buried in baptism, to walk in newness of life. There are three more applicants, which will make eighteen added to the church during this winter."
