Sneak Preview

Here is the picture which will be on the cover of the April issue of the Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage magazine. This is the inside of Eli Powl's garage in the city of Lancaster in 1924. Eli Powl is one of the people in my article on the Powells which will appear in this issue. Eli and his father, Isaac, ran a top-notch livery in Lancaster for many years but Eli upgraded to cars when they began to overtake the livery business. He rented cars to people for weddings and funerals. This was an up-to-date place in 1924. I wonder what all those old cars would be worth today.
