Hello Anonymous,

Is that really your grandfather? You are right, the photo was taken at a trade show. I had a series of photos from this trade show but did not know where or when the event was held. Do you know? Where was your grandfather's shop located? Elderly relatives of mine, all longtime Detroiters, remember the name but cannot recall the location. Please click on the link for an uncropped view of the photo:

Always great when someone makes the connection! I've only had one or two pictures on my found photos page where anyone has chimed in to say they know the person pictured. Thanks for the info, anonymous relative! :)
