JUST 45 YEARS AGO.
E.- T. Smith, one of Honesdale's
artistic carriage decorators and
trimmers, has been in business tho
longes-t of anyono in his line in
Honesdale. Mr. Smith learned his
trade In Newnrk, N. J., 45 years ago
and sinco February 14, 1871, has
been a resident of Honesdale, hav
ing followed his trade here ever

interesting is that he has been in the
same building this length of tlmo
without a change, not even having
experienced a fire. The old carriage
decorating shop is substantially
built. The Interior Is partially plas
tered. The continual dropping of
paint and varnish upon the floor has
formed heavy coats of paint and It
is Impossible to discern where tho
cracks of the floor are In soma
places. The building is equipped
with an elevator. Shortly after com
ing to Honesdale Mr. Smith formed
a partnership with the late Eugene A.
Edgett. Carriages were made and
decorated hy the firm. There are
wagons that were made by Smith
& Edgett that are still In use. Af

Smith sold his interests in the busi
ness to Mr. Edgett, who exclusively
conducted the manufacturing end of
the business, while Mr. Smith con
tinued the decorating end.

changed of late in that wagons are
built by large concerns more rapidly
and cheaply now than could former
ly be produced by hand, conse
quently he has purchased his wagons
by the carload, using his shop as a
