Crossing the Sierras with TC Wohlbruck

March 6, 2020

 

A presentation by Trey Pitsenberger, June 6th at 2:00 pm, Sparks Heritage Museum.  See EVENTS for further details.  T.C. Wohlbrück was a photographer who arrived in California in 1912 from Massachusetts after getting a divorce in Reno. While traveling around the state in his automobile taking school class photos, he realized that cars needed regular oil and water top offs as well as gasoline. Being an entrepreneur, he addressed the problem by building what he called a “Lookout” and “Canteen Service Station” at Emigrant Gap along the Lincoln Highway’s northern California route over Donner Summit. Wohlbrück would go on to build other Canteens. Using Wohlbrück’s wonderful real photograph postcards of the Sierra, this program will tell the story about this enterprising photographer.
