Karl Martz working at the
Brown County Pottery, 1934.
The location is believed to have been West Franklin Street
in Nashville, Indiana, on the
North side of the street between Van Buren St. and Honeysuckle Lane
The view is thought to be looking west down the North side
of West Franklin St. Behind the photographer to the right
would be the Bartlett house. After a fire which burned the
building shown (date?), the Brown County Pottery moved to
a building one lot farther West, adjacent to Honeysuckle Lane.
Beyond Honeysuckle Lane, in the distance and out of view behind
the Pottery building was the residence of Allie Ferguson. The
Ferguson House stands there in 2002. What appears to be a woman
in white in the distance might be Allie Ferguson.
