    I like that idea. Beats waiting on the side of the road for that slow poke from the next Co. to show up.
     
  2. I think they were also used by Sheriffs & Marshals bringing in prisoners & overnight travel.

    Union Pipe Company, Owensville, MO. Circa 1905-09. Union Pipe Factory began operation in 1905. Making “Missouri sweet corn cob pipes,” the factory at North Second Street and McFadden Avenue employed between 25 and 50 workers at various times. That year, according to statistics compiled by the State Labor Commission, 90,550 pounds of corn cob pipes, or 1,086,600 individual corn cob pipes, and 1,200 pounds of pipe stems (80,000) were shipped. In addition, 14 carloads of raw corn cobs were shipped to other pipe makers. In July 1909, the pipe factory was destroyed by a fire that spread next door to the Farmers & Mechanics Mill, which provided electrical power to the pipe factory. The mill was rebuilt on the same location and stood until it was razed circa 2015. Photo Repository: Zinn Family Photos. Restoration by LongView HD.

    Wood Hat whiskey popped in my head when I saw this pic.
     
  11. Looks British-like to me. I can't tell if it's vintage felt or just a costume hat.

    Had an uncle with a Paint mule. Looked for years for another to have a pair.
     
  18. I would take the car!

    My grandfather never had one; I've never seen one.

    California Joe, that @Desert dog posted a pic of, was a mule rider from his days as a mountain man. I can just see him riding a Paint!

    African American tenant farmers assembled for a barbecue. The tenants worked for Louis Frank Sessions who appears in the front row, third from the left (wearing a light colored hat). To his right is Miss Helen Holden of Chicago. The barbecue followed a lecture by International Harvester’s Agricultural Extension Department. According to the original caption, the tenants “finished up the barbecue after the white folks had eaten their fill.” One man is holding a guitar and another is holding a violin (fiddle).
