Photographer's Note

Another scene from the Placerville Main Street car show. The auto here is probably a 1940s Ford, and interestingly the brick building behind it was built in 1893 by the Freemasons. They are a fraternal organization that traces its history back to the 14th century, describing Freemasonry's members as a "beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. Most of their symbolism is from the tools of stonemasons, but not exclusively. Their main symbol is the square and compasses. They attach a moral lesson to each symbolic tool.
Notable historical American Freemasons were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin.
