  1. Hello Noel Black,

    Thank you for finding this photograph and showing it to the world. Larry Hightower is my great grandfather I have been researching for 3 years. I actually tracked down this exact wheelbarrow and have it in my possesion. On the wheelbarrow it says Palace Cafe 4th July 1946.
