Picturing the Past 66: Laying down the lawPosted Tuesday, June 22, 2010, at 8:17 AM
Shelbyville attorneys from around the turn of the century 110 or so years ago. (Photo montage submitted by Jerry Cook)
These men are Shelbyville lawyers from, I'd guess, the period 1890-1910, in a photo montage brought in by Jerry Cook.
Four are identified, and note the numbers by each photo: Edmond Cooper, who is in the large photo in the middle (number 7); Walter Scott Bearden (number 5, in the middle on the top row); Clement Jeremiah Moody (number 13, on the right in the third row to the right of Cooper); and Ernest Coldwell (number 14, just below Moody).
I imagine a few readers may be able to identify more of them. Definitely no shortage of chin hair here.
Sorry the photo montage isn't any larger but it's as large as our web setup could get it.
Here's a look at "The Old Rock House" from a photo listed here as by "Jno. W. Ruth and Sons." Where was it? I guess the publishers of the photo were the same Ruth family that operated businesses here into the mid-20th century. Thanks to Don Hoover for the contribution.
Picturing the Past is featured each Tuesday in this blog. Reader contributions are welcome.
