Jake Beckley and Ed Von Tobel, Sr. in front of Ed. Von Tobel Lumber Company
Ed Von Tobel, Sr. and Jake Beckley stand in front of the Von Tobel Lumber Company on South First Street in Las Vegas. Pictured are the office, lumber storage, shed and sales room. Beckley, Ed. Von Tobel Sr.'s business partner is seen standing on a horse-drawn wagon on the left. Behind the wagon are stacked shingles. The lumber company was founded in 1905, shortly after the Las Vegas townsite lot auction, but moved from its original location on South Main Street when that proved to be "too far out of town" for business. The South First Street building was destroyed by fire in 1914. Photograph taken 1905?-1906?
