Men in front of Grundtisch Bros. Buggy Works
Description: The photograph shows Harry Kinley and Elmer Walters standing on boards on the street in front of the Grundtisch Bros. Buggy Works in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Behind them stands a horse and buggy, the Reber House Hotel, and a telephone pole. There is another horse further down the brick street. One of the signs on a wooden box to their right reads "New Design." The 1877 Wyandot County Directory lists Grundtisch Wagon Makers at S 4th St. and N Wyandott Ave. Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969) was a native of Upper Sandusky. He was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a travelling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
