Description: Two photographs of Skidmore, Texas. The top photograph of the Skidmore Garage shows John F. Petrus standing on the right and James Galloway on the left (1922). In 1929 John F. Petrus built a large garage adjacent to the bank building and became “Mr. Fix-It”. Any job that couldn’t be done satisfactorily any place else, ended at Mr. John’s. The garage was still open in the 1970’s as the oldest business building still in use. John Ferdinand Petrus (November 30, 1893 to March 18, 1979) married Justina Catherine Hartman (August 4, 1895 to February 11, 1992) on November 12, 1917 in Skidmore. They are both buried in Evergreen Cemetery outside of Skidmore. John and Isabelle Galloway arrived in Skidmore in 1884 as a young married couple from Broxburne, Scotland, John worked for Frank Skidmore. After organizing a community Sunday School for all denominations, in 1890 he helped organize the Methodist Church. Mr. Galloway owned the Little Gem Confectionery in Skidmore. His son, John Galloway Jr. owned and operated Farmers Mercantile. That business evolved into a successful funeral business now located in Beeville. The second picture is a bird's eye view looking north of Skidmore at an unknown date.
