1917- 1924 - Noah Elwood Weaver Family Photos Lake Erie, Mansfield, Cleveland, Canton and more

 Still working on Noah Elwood Weaver's many albums.  The large Format Album from 1912 through the 1920's has intrigued me now.  I delivered five albums to Wright State University Archives in 2015, and one in 2016, and   now, later in 2016,  am focusing on identifying the names and locations of others.

Noah Elwood Weaver in his white suit, hat and shoes, on a 1917 page when he visited Hans O Hansen and family in Canton Ohio. 

1917 Noah Elwood with son Paul Henry Weaver, in front of the Hans and Phenie Hansen home, Canton Ohio.

 Niel E Hansen's 1917 Draft Registration while he was in NY in Union Theological Seminary. His permanent address if 733 Lorenz - Lawrence  Ave, Canton OH, which I sense is the home in these photos

 1917 same stairs, Canton Ohio,  woman, Helen Sanders with WWI dressed Niel Esburn Hansen- Lester Sanders is her father according to my research.

Recently a friend Peggy DeLapp that has family history in Canton and took a photo of 733 Lawrence as it appears in April 2018

The same home and address in 2018, 733 Lawrence. Canton Ohio, by Peggy DeLapp. 

  Canton Furniture Manufacturing Company Building , found on line at 836 Savannah Ave, Canton OH, here is Niel E Hansen in uniform visiting his father Hans O Hansen at the manufacturing building in 1917 - Curious of Hans worked both here in Canton And at the Mansfield Reformatory at that time 

And here is what 836 Savannah Ave Canton looks like today, from the camera of Peggy DeLapp April 2018

1919 License Oldsmoblie next to a tree with Marysville advertizement.  Henry Eicher in the passenger seat.  Wet pavement Noah Elwood Weaver- Got a correction on the ID of the vintage car that I thought was a Buick from 
BOZI MOHACEK  ------------------------------------

Surrey Vintage Vehicle Society

England [2]
Here is the detail Bozi Sent. "
Two photographs with text as per attached. Rounded radiator design on the Oldsmobile came in in cca 1917 and went through to cca 1925. The triangular shaped bumper came in cca 1920. Both photos show slightly unusual headlights. Drum headlights were in use by 1922. I think the cars in the photos could be the same car, a cca 1920 Oldsmobile 45B Touring, similar to the photo attached. Will put an item on our Help Pages about the car. 

Although this photo is on the same page as some 1922 Lake Erie Scenes, the Ohio License Plate says 1920.  I think this the same car and thus an Olds , and I see Henry Eicher eating what appears to be a sandwich and Edna Eicher Weaver, his youngest child sitting inside. Rural Ohio somewhere, not labeled AND likely the conveyance for the family throughout Ohio.

July 1922 Rutted Road "On the Way to Cedar Point" Writing of Edna Eicher Weaver on back of photo, in large format album of Noah Elwood Weaver, soon to be given to Wright State University archives.
On the back of this photo, no page ID yet is written July/22 Cedar Point.   In 1922 Paul Henry Weaver, my dad, was 11 years of age, having been born Dec 24, 1910, here on the beach being buried partially in the sand with his dad, Noah Elwood Weaver smiling, with the photo likely taken by Edna Helena Eicher Weaver.    Of interest is there is no focus on the Amusement Park with rides at Cedar Point.
