PH159. Ryder’s Photographic Landscapes, Cleveland, O. Advertising boat of E.B. Nock. From the great-granddaughter of E.B. Nock: “The boat was in the pond at Public Square [Cleveland] from about 1875-1900. He had been a cook on a river boat when he was young and entertained passengers in the evening by playing his guitar. A photographer offered to teach him photography if E. B. would show him how to play the guitar. I believe this is why he used the boat for advertising. The man who raised the flag on Public Square would wind the boat mechanism as well so the figures could move around the decks.” VG. $150
