Catalog Number WF 4378
Description Chris Nelson and his family are posed in front of their home. The 1929 through 1937 city directory only listed a "Christ Nelson"; that is probably the actual spelling of Nelson's name. Christ was a European shortening of the name "Christian." He and his wife, Doris, lived with their family at 1610 10th Street. Nelson was a "Watkins Man," a door-to-door salesman that was a fixture of many communities from the late-1800s on. For a view of Nelson's "Watkins car", see WF 2277.
