This ca. 1910 photo was taken of two, one-story frame livery buildings that are still standing today.  Constructed between 1868 and 1872, they are located at the southwest corner of Court Street and Miami Avenue.

 

The development of industry nationwide depended upon the availability of natural resources, and ultimately, the advancement of technology. For example, before the advent of the process necessary to develop iron into steel, manufacturing businesses dealt primarily with what resources were available, such as wood, crude forms of iron, and animal hides. The earliest industries concentrated on providing those things needed for survival, such as food staples and implements necessary to work the land. So it was in the early days in Sidney, Ohio. Businesses such as the one at left were necessary to keep residents’ horses shoed (an important early means of transportation).
