Vintage Photo: Elderfield-Hartshorn Hardware Company

(Click image to view enlarged photo)

Original 8x10 photo from Hotel Niagara dinner, 1938 for Mr. Hartshorn.
The Niagara Gazette published the photo in 1938 and the newspaper clipping indicates the following. "Pictured above are employees of the Elderfield-Hartshorn Hardware company gathered about the banquet table at a birthday dinner given Wednesday night at the Hotel Niagara in honor of Eugene G. Hartshorn, vice-president of the company. Mr. Hartshorn is completing his fifty-fourth year in the hardware business and will be 75 years old on April 15. He may be seen seated at the dinner table left of the center candelabra. "

My grandfather Tom Donato, worked at Elderfield-Hartshorns for many years after returning from service in France during WWI until it closed.
