David was a twin (he’s pictured with his brother Dennis below).
They were born and raised in Harrison County. The pictures were taken in New Albany probably between 1885 and 1890. I imagine a trip to New Albany was a pretty big deal for a farm boy from Harrison County. As a frequent visitor to downtown myself I'm pretty sure I've walked in his footsteps more than once. I guess that's one reason I'm a little freaky about this town.
The weather has been nasty lately and I’ve been busy, but I am working on a nice photo collection of the wrought iron of New Albany. Stay tuned.
