The Reverend preached the funeral service to an empty church, while the deceased's friends and colleagues fought in the parking lot over who got to ride in the taxicabs.

(Tacoma, Washington Territory; 1870s) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1603c.circuit-preachers-longshoreman-funeral.html)
