Donetia Hurt, of Lima, is sharing this photo to see if its family can be found. A friend from her LCC days, Judi Wiechart, purchased this photo at a garage sale in Tennesee. Hurt explains she enjoys older things, and her friend thought of her when she saw the box of items that contained this domed photo and frame. Hurt has a family photo in a matching frame, which leads her to believe this photo dates from 1910-1920.

The back of the photo Hurt shared offers two clues: M. Davis and Lima. Hurt remembers the former Davis Drug in Lima and wonders if these children were part of that family.

The restaurant at the former Lazarus store, photographed here in 1971, was the perfect place for lunch out while shopping. Note the ash trays on the tables.
