Granville Mystery Photo 1: The Ice Man

Occasionally we come across interesting photos that are believed to have been taken in Granville, but which are a complete mystery as to when, where and who. In honor of the 2017 Ice Harvest event we begin the "Mystery Photo" series with a photo believed to have been taken between 1890 and 1910 somewhere in Granville:

The photo was originally in the Holcomb / Rowley family collection which may provide a clue as to the identity of The Ice Man. Clues as to the location include the water tower, telegraph pole and sloping landscape. The wagon has something painted on the side: the first word may start with "S" and the second word is likely "Pond."
