Describe a trip downtown as a youngster.
“Main Street was 1 block from our house and it was 2 blocks long. There was Barth Hotel and Store on the North side of the street. Then Wilbur’s Store, then the drug store and the theater and Whiting’s Store & Garage. On the South side there was Schuster’s (a little bit of everything) Store, Anderson's Hardware Store, and Barth’s Printing Shop over Tom Davis Café. Dr. Boulder’s office, Patterson’s Garage and some one’s hotel that burned up and I think 2 boys were killed in the fire. It was terrible.”
