Shop photos

Not great content but probably typical for the time. No hints to location and circa 1910?

Here is another repair shop picture. The calendar dates the picture as April, 1905.

The above photo may be later than 1910. I was judging it from the matting style. I don't see it being much later than 1920, again from the mat style.

This photo has an old west look to it. The barber pole is interesting but the watchmakers sign has a great look.

This one is labeled "Hill City, S.D." which is close to Rapid City, S.D.. South Dakota became a state in 1889 so this would postdate that.

Wouldn't you love to get your hands inside that watch case for just one minute?

Here's one from a shop in Oakland California that I actually pulled out of a dumpster in Berkeley. I believe it dates to the 1930's.
