El Reno, Oklahoma to Greensburg, Indiana

Unidentified photo from the museum's collections

I'm so curious to know how this photo made it's way to Greensburg! The card imprint names the photographer as C. C. Stotz of El Reno, Oklahoma. This photo was likely taken after 1907, when Oklahoma became a state.

According to census records and city directories, Christopher Stotz lived in El Reno with his wife Clara in the early 1900's. Many more Stotz photos are at the Oklahoma Historical Society. You can view them by searching their online database for "Stotz."
