Fire ruins in Upper Sandusky
Description: The photograph shows six men working to clear rubble after a fire in downtown Upper Sandusky, Ohio, in November 1918. They work to clear the rubble with pick axes in the remains of a burned building. Only the studs remain of the building. The fire, largely confined to the Hotel Fetter, caused two fatalities and $250,000 in damages overall. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley 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 traveling 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.
