ALBION – This photo was taken about 100 years ago and shows the Lake Country Pennysaver building at 170 North Main St., Albion.

Signage in the picture indicates: “Ford Cars,” “Albion Garage,” “Harness, Horse Goods and Carriage Trimmings,” and “General Store.”

A number of Model T Fords and their owners are lined up for this unusual picture. A watering trough appears in the lower right foreground.

Here is a closeup of the left side of the photo.
