TITLE   Western Union Telegraph office
DESCRIPTION   Interior view of a Western Union Telegraph office located in Corpus Christi, Texas. Three men and three women pose behind a wooden counter which divides this long office space in half. The man second from left is Ed Nettleton. A sign on the counter says "Our Folder F-3 Tells How Money Has Been Collected At A Cost As Low As 1%." This indicates that they offered a collection service to businesses. Three clocks hang on the walls of the office.
