Back in the days of bustle skirts and oil lamps, the old Roberts House (now Hotel Chateaugay) appears to be the center of activity. This photo, apparently taken near the turn of the century, was a tintype and the photographer transposed the negative, reversing the print. [The image has been rectified.]
Late 1800s, Johnston Bros. Lumber Company and store on East Main Street, Chateaugay. Although it has changed ownership several times, the original architecture remians the same. Fred and Grace Russ, the present owners, operated the “Russtique Antiques”, which has now been closed.
Charles Harrica leaning on the flat bed press handle; the man at the type case not identified. Many changes and equipment have taken place — only the long hours and hard work remain. This photo was found among the momentos of the late Bill Ferrell.
