  1. How wonderful that you have a photo of a family business! I often lament how little I know about my ancestors' occupations. After all, they spent 40+ hours a week at them, it's a big piece of their lives I know little about. Great photo!

    1. I understand! Most of mine were farmers or miners. Not a lot of excitement there.

    1. Thank you! I've heard many stories from my husband's family of all the things that were thrown away over the years. I;m glad they have this as a reminder.

  3. Your family's surname on a hardware store! This is a photo to treasure. It's a signature of one family upon the world. Yay!
