Crider Mystery Machine

Crider Mystery Machine ( Photo courtesy of Michael Von Gebel)

This one is most likely for the guys.  What this machine is for or does is anyone’s guess.  This picture was taken at Cridersville, OH.  This picture was given to me with other family photos.  The guy on the far right is believed to be John Cleveland Crider and this photo was taken circa 1917-1925.  I have put out an email to Cridersville to see if anyone knows what this machine was?  After that I will try the Smithsonian.  In the meantime if anyone else knows drop me a line.
