Hello, Jacob!

Just when you think you've seen it all...

Rob Glover of the Joiner History Room shared this recent discovery in an email to me:

"Steve Bigolin has been volunteering at the History Center and found a mis-dated picture that showed the glass structure, but with 1933 as the date (after we know that the structure has been removed).

We know from your reviews of the photos to make a closer scan when people are present. In the detail, you can see Jacob on the porch with three women."

Another image of Jacob Haish exists! What an incredible find. We are hoping to identify the other people in this image, and will hopefully learn even more about it.
