Time for a Ride--c1907

These lovely middle class ladies paused sometime on a warm day most likely in 1907 along Ritter Avenue for this photograph.  Behind them, you can see 31 and 39 North Ritter Avenue.  Both homes are currently standing.  The street had been newly bricked and in one photo, the horses have christened the avenue.  Although the names of the women are not known, they are likely connected with the Hackleman family, who dwelled at 34 North Ritter Avenue.  These wonderful images are courtesy of the Larry Muncie Collection from the Irvington Historical Society.
