Van Deren Coke (1921-2004) took many photos along Georgetown Street on his way into work as president of Van Deren Hardware Co. This one was taken in 1940. Coke later left the family hardware business to pursue photography and museum work, holding top positions at the George Eastman House and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
