Who are these Guys?
Louisville Photograph discovered - from 1929
Louisville can be proud of it's hard working Historian Bill Tempelmeyer, another bit of historical treasure has been discovered but now we have a puzzle on our hands! A rare photo, sent to Bill by Julie Meisinger shows aprox 140 men attending a Safety Meeting at Ash Grove

(Click The photo to re-size it and you can get pretty good detail of the faces)
Now given the probable age of these men at 17 to 25, at the time of the photo. It is unlikely that any of them are still with us, but it is possible that their kids, or grand kids are going to see this photo!
What we need, is a real effort to put names with the faces, and that is up to you!
Take a look, click to enlarge the photo, and send it to anyone that can help!
Email us with your results!

Another time - Our Home Town
I looked at that picture from the 'Ol Historian and I tried to imagine that early Spring morning in 1929. Young folks heading out to the quarry, thinking about their kids, their town, their future. I wonder if any of them ever imagined that we would be staring at an old tattered photograph on our computers 77 years later.
I didn't spend a lot of time with my Grandpa Shriver, but I know that he worked on the huge Hoover dam project on the Colorado river. I hope that this picture helps some Grand kid to not only put a face on a story of their grandpa, but also look at all his buddies as they head off to work. Kinda get a feel for what that might have been like back then.
Do you think maybe, in the year 2083 after we are all gone, that some kid will be pouring over a picture of Louisville in 2006 and trying to imagine life back then?
Having Fun and watching Pete Ricketts commercials South of the River
