The World of Jack Hammer

Main Street, 1948

People say a picture is worth a thousand words. Maybe they just don’t like readin’…
This is where I live and work: the squeaky clean streets of Salt Lake City in 1948. When I came home from The War  in ‘46 I was 26 years old, too old to go back to school or live with Mother. Instead I took a job as a night watchman at Auerbach’s department store babysitting mannequins. I’ve been trying to use my skills from my years in the Army as MP, so I set up my own little business as a Private Investigator finding stray dog, cats and husbands. I rent a little two-room office on Main where I work and sleep. If you need a good P.I. ask for me, Jack Hammer, Mormon Detective… If you just want to read my story, click on The Lost Rhoades Mine, Chapter 1.
