TITLE   OK Garage
DESCRIPTION   Interior view of OK Garage in Corpus Christi, Texas. Six men stand in the middle of a large brick and concrete structure. The three men in work clothes in the center are, from left to right, Doc Whitaker, Albert Fischer from Robstown, and George Chalk, who later owned Chalk & Essinger Machine Shop. The overhead line shaft had apparently been abandoned for the more modern individually powered tools. This garage was located across from the fire station.
