The caption for this photo might have said something like, “Transition from hats to hatless”—it was still a time when haberdashers still made a living but were clearly on the way out. Of course we don’t expect anyone to name all these people. We’d be thrilled if you could just tell us about when and where this was taken. In front of the courthouse? We have no idea. All we know about this picture is that it ran in The Sentinel sometime, lost in the annals of yesteryear. If you know anything about it, please drop us an email (, or give us a call (509-773-3777), or drop in at the office—and remember, you’re welcome to come in and take a look at the original photograph.
