The rear parking lot at St. Mary’s Church had been developed over a year ago and recently got a coat of asphalt. Click on the photo for a larger view.

St. Mary’s Hospital recently expanded the parking lot to the south of the Orr Building and just recently it got a fresh coat of asphalt. The Physical Therapy Clinic apparently recently moved out of the Orr Building to the lower level of the main clinic building which is why the lot was expanded. More info to come from the hospital.

Laurino’s Medicine Show. Click on the photo for a larger view.

Hoene Hardware about 1915 featuring the patterned tin roof and the ladder that followed a track in the ceiling to reach the top shelf items. Pictured from left are Frank Kelsey, J.H. Welty, Helen Wagner and Bill Kelsey. Photo courtesy of Gus Hoene. Click on the photo for a larger view.
