Edward Elsner, a Librarian at Oswego Public Library, created this wonderful video featuring glass plate photographs by Ella (Crippen) Wheeler. The photographs show Oswego, New York as it was in 1900-1910. The video also features the music of the Heftone Banjo Orchestra playing the 1905 hit, "In My Merry Oldsmobile".
