Today, an old photo from Chattanooga, Ohio, taken in front of the Chatt Bar some time before 1918. As far as I know, the Chatt Bar has always been in the same location.
This photo is from Doug Roebuck. It is interesting to see the unusual shape of the roof-line, the hitching post with a horse tied tied to it, and a sign in the window-Smokes and Liquor.
There are seven men standing in front of the building. Doug can identify one person in the photo, his great-grandfather Fred Heffner, the man with a mustache standing to the far right. Fred Heffner owned the establishment at the time.
Doug wonders who the other men in the photo are.
Maybe some of you have seen this photo before and can identify the other men.
Doug Roebuck is also a Merkle descendant. Merkle & Egger once owned and operated a grocery in Chatt and ran a huckster wagon in the area.
I would love to hear from someone who can identify the men standing in front of the Chatt Bar in the above photo.
