SHSMO Springfield Research Center is exhibiting a select number of photographs from the Elsey Carriage Company Photograph Collection (SP0049) at the Library Station. The photographs were commissioned by Grant Elsey, owner and operator of G. E. Elsey Carriage Company of Springfield, Missouri, from 1904 to 1953. Many of the images include carriages parked in front of Elsey’s shop, as well as background scenes of Springfield streets and businesses. The collection provides viewers a glimpse into transportation, vehicle craftsmanship, and related businesses in the Ozarks at the turn of the century.

This exhibition is provided in partnership with Springfield-Greene County Library District.
