Menard Texas Glass-plate Negatives circa 1913-17
I have scanned a box of glass-plate negatives loaned to me from Menard. They are 3-1/4″ X 4″ in size. I believe all are families and locations in Menard by an unknown photographer or date. The school classroom photos have the Bank of Menard calendar for January 1917 and February 1917 on the wall. Some of these have been shared and published in the Menard News in the past and shown as courtesy of Bill Murchison.
I have posted these on the Facebook page Menard County, Texas ~ History and Genealogy from a share on my Facebook page in an album Menard Glass-plate Negatives circa 1913-17.
I welcome anyone and especially some of the great history sleuths out there to help identify these folks and/or locations.
This glass-negative photo was published in the Menard News. Said to be 1916’s downtown Menard, Johnny Frazier was a busy man with his harness repair shop, making boots and repairing shoes. His place of business was where the Napa Store (old Western Auto) is now located. Photo courtesy Bill Murchison.
