Old Pictures of Marion

This great old picture is of the old Marion Coal and Transfer Co. located near the Illinois Central Railroad tracks in 1916.

In the picture from left to right.  Seldon Driver in the wagon, Hayse and Reid Easley on the porch and Otis Burr in the wagon on the right.

Crittenden Press, March 11, 1911.

Al Easley had taken charge of the black shop on North College Street.

He will be ready for all kinds of repair work, blacksmithing and horse shoeing.  He is a good workman and guarantees satisfaction in all departments.
