Granville Mystery Photo 3: Shop Workers

The third photo in our "Mystery" series is a group shot of workers at an unknown location that MAY (or may not) be Noble & Cooley. The time period is estimated to be 1880 to 1890 but that's just a guess. If this is a Noble & Cooley photo it is the only known image of this group of workers, making it important to the NCCHP collection. We have been unable to conclusively identify where the photo was taken due to the many changes to N&C's buildings over the years.

The photo is unusual because of the building materials scattered on the ground, suggesting the photo was either taken on the spur of the moment (a traveling photographer perhaps), or the photo was taken to mark the completion of a new building addition or other construction. Or...??
