ALBION – Charles W. Fairbanks took this picture in the early 1930s of Russell Braley and Dr. Ben Howes on East Bank Street in Albion.

Fairbanks entitled this unposed moment in time: “That ain’t the way I heer’d it.” The photo was entered into the Amateur Snapshot Contest sponsored by a Rochester newspaper and appeared as we see it in a supplement.
