[Three Old-Time Stores]

Description:

This picture appears to show three stores that stand cheek-by-jowl. A saddlery on the far left shares space with a furniture store--and an undertaker's establishment on the far right. The sign over the stores combines their functions in a way that would--under other circumstances--seem comical. The building itself was located at the corner of SE 1st, and South Oak Streets. A note on the photograph states that it was south of the MARTIN BUILDING. It was once the McBrayer-Armstrong Grocery, then later the Nash Hardware store. The location of Lattner eventually became the Buy-Rite store [116 South Oak Avenue, at the corner of SE 1st Street, until some time in the early 1980's].
The road is unpaved, there is no evidence of lighting--except for the lamp mounted on a post at the front of the building, and the horse-drawn hearse suggests that the picture, therefore, dates from the end of the 19th century--or the earliest 20th century.
