Moments in time … in photographs


Delicious-looking baked goods at the 1906 La Porte County Fair.


This business, as advertised in the 1876-77 city directory, was established in 1834. W.N. Ball, Undertaker, located in “rear of the First National Bank,” guaranteed “A full stock of Caskets, Shrouds, etc., always on hand. A good Hearse in readiness to attend Funerals in Town or Country at all times.”



This circus wagon and team of horses belonged to the Washington Park Zoo. “Washington Park Zoo” is written on the side.
