Here is another one of mine. A casual glance would show a list of business that you might find in any city in the country at the time. To the far left of this image was “Gilbert’s Jewelry Store” (only “LBERT” can be made out in the image). To the right was F. Geutebruck who dealt Cuban and American tobacco and snuff. To its right was China, Glass and Queensware, with two more cigar manufacturer’s or wholesalers to the right of that. In the first floor window of the China, glass store they advertised the sale of “Lamp, Pine and Kerosene oils”. It is outside of this building that an African-American solider decided to rest. Just above his head the first floor announced another commodity, slaves. “Auction & Negro Sales” available in the same building as fine china and lamp oil. This building, as well as much of Atlanta was destroyed not long after this image was taken when the burning of Atlanta became the starting point of Sherman’s march to the sea.
