      Attached is a photo of that old Carnegie Library building.

      The windows of the old Carnegie Library do not match up with the photo we are trying to identify.

      It should be noted that the vehicle is one that is an above average cost vehicle and thus is likely the vehicle of an above average wealth person.

      Another noted oddity is that there are FOUR women in the vehicle and NO men.

      I suspect that the vehicle is late 1920's. Does anyone know for sure?

      These clues would lead me to believe that these women in the vehicle are the wife, children and Mother ( or Mother-in-Law) of a local wealthy dignitary.

      I enjoy so much the photos & other material in this newsgroup.

      Can't help you solve the mystery of "who" & "where" -- but I have a
      guess about "where." From what I can recall from so many years ago,
      the photo looks to me like it could be the old Carnegie Libary. I
      don't recall it being covered in ivy or any other flora, but this photo
      would have been taken perhaps decades before I was a daily customer
      there. The basement door/railing looks to me just like the entrance to
      the old children's library, & the sidewalk & 1st floor windows match up
      with what I recall too.
