Draper and Phelps, 1919

In the early teens, Draper and Phelps sold farm machinery and
implements from their store located at 1101 Broad St. in downtown
Newcastle, Ind. What caught my eye in this photo is the line of
gasoline engines on the floor. I know the front two are Uniteds,
but I’m not sure about the back two. If you look very closely,
you can also see a United calendar hanging on the left wall.

Pictured left to right are: C.A. Phelps (co-owner), W.O. Riggs,
W.L. Draper (co-owner).
