Shorpy Saturday – The Steno Pool: 1903

By Jeffrey Buck

Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day weekend!

Take a look at the photograph entitled “The Steno Pool: 1903“:

“Stenographers’ room, Leland & Faulconer Manufacturing Co., Detroit.” It’s always helpful to have a calendar in the room when dating a photo, and here we’ve hit the jackpot. In fact the main focus of this room seems to be calendars, with paperweights a strong second. These ladies ran a tight ship, with little doubt as to what year it was or whether that crucial report might go sailing out the window. 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
