This photo is one of over 840 glass plate negatives in our museum collection.
Taken between 1892 - 1920 by Marion G. Warner who owned the general store at Main & Elm St (our 1910 building), these priceless artifacts of historic Monroe were found by Mr. James Price in an outdoor shed when the building next door (where our main museum is today) was being prepared for demolition.
Now digitized for preservation, we can’t thank Jim enough for saving this treasured collection!

Hauling Tomatoes - July 30, 1914  
Marion Warner was an artist before he was a druggist & store owner. Photography was obviously his hobby & he often combined the two by drawing on his picture negatives. The photo above is a perfect example - he drew the big tomatoes onto Charles Shafors coal wagon and made a comic postcard that he sold in his store!
