So here is Milwaukee Monday #1. My best guess is this photo is from 1912-1913?

Milwaukee Monday #1
In the age of vintage choppers as the mainstream, it's time to change things up a bit. I was just handed down an amazing collection of photos that the factory probably doesn't know exists outside their own walls. A number of them may not pass as "PC" today. It's a complicated story of how they were acquired however, I'm honored to now be the caretaker of these photos. All of the photos were printed from original glass plate negatives. I know the internet is risky business of posting stuff, especially the things that are rare. They get saved, overly re-posted, with no sources given, and before you know it's on every other blog and lost into internet oblivion. So take the time to look these over, give credit where credit is due, and just enjoy these old pics. More to come.
