Dr. C. J. Mendenhall, wagon


A man sits on a load of wooden pallets in a wagon hitched to a two-horse team. On the back of the wagon is a large, cloth-covered bale. The man holds the reins for a two-horse team and a whip or goad of some sort. The road is plank, and the building behind the wagon has a raised porch, carved spindles that support the roof, and a large, double window that frames a recessed doorway. A power pole stands by the corner of the building, and the side of the next building shows paned, double-hung windows in a series of three on each of two floors beneath a gabled roof.
