John W. Cheney (1928-1996) was my father’s insurance agent in Richwood, Ohio, with an office on the second floor of the Richwood Banking Company building.  In 1964, he had to handle a major claim when our auto dealership was destroyed by fire.

A year and a half later, John went west, moving first to California (if I recall correctly) and eventually relocating to Illinois.

His last day in the Richwood office was Friday, January 28, 1966.  It was clear but bitterly cold in central Ohio, with a low of -2° and a high of 8°.

John used his always-handy insurance agent’s Polaroid camera to take five pictures of the view of North Franklin Street from his office windows.  Clark Cheney has uploaded those 1966 photos to the Internet, and I’ve stitched them together into this panorama.
