Mose Bone Sample Room
Men around the Mose Bone Sample Room. A male dwarf is walking in front of the saloon, which is north of the railroad depot. A sign on the building advertises "Drink Schlitz, the Beer that Made Milwaukee Famous, For Sale at Mose Bones." There is a sign painted on the side of the building advertising "Cigars, Lunch Room, and Lodging."

This image is part of a collection of over 6,000 glass plate negatives created by Charles J. Van Schaick. Van Schaick learned the art of photography after moving to Jackson County, Wisconsin. In 1885, he opened a studio in Black River Falls, Wisconsin and served as the town photographer for over 50 years. His work includes both studio portraits and richly varied and intimate snapshots of small-town, Wisconsin life. A portion of his photographic work is represented in Wisconsin Death Trip by Michael Lesy.
