Creator Description John Wilder Glover, president of Glover Machine Works from 1897 to the early 1940s, took many if not most of the builder's photographs for locomotives the firm made. Glover was born on September 1, 1875, and died on September 18, 1942. (His younger brother, James Bolan Glover, Jr., was born in 1866, and died in 1897. J. B. was the first president of the business.) J. W.'s photos emulated larger builders' photographs but often betrayed his inexpertness:the shadow of the photographer, family members, dogs. The Southern Museum Archives has several hundred glass plate negatives from the Glover company.
