Crawford Smith: Mid 1950s


Clarence Schaffer, who operated Schaffer's Smoke House in the 300 block of Broadway for more than 30 years, created a sketch collection circa 1954, capturing the images of regular card players in the cigar store's back room.

Among those featured was Crawford Smith, a key link in the 145-year lineage of Smith Funeral Home & Chapel in Hannibal.

This sketch is reprinted from the June 15, 1979 edition of the Hannibal Courier-Post
