Must be Saturday.
I find it interesting to compare the more modern Model T Era downtown photo (top) to the older photo (bottom).
In the first picture, to the far left, the sign on the building says "Kilburn Furniture and Underta" with the last part of the word cut off. Could that say "Undertaker"?? Perhaps they made their own caskets to display along with the furniture?
Yes, furniture/undertaking was a very common combination.
Steve, on one of the interstates leaving St Louis and heading west (I44 or I70, I think), there is a billboard advertising a furniture store and mortuary. I guess the family just kept on with what they had been doing 100 years earlier.
I didn't know that, Steve. Thanks.
Jay,,you come up with the best pics. They are way before my time but I have been enjoying them very much,,,, Thanks.
I'm with Scott.
It is great that folks take the time and effort to post such pictures.
