This is another “remember when” from our collection.
The newspaper says:
This photo- of Earl Fuller, left, and Carl Auer – was taken back in 1913, and it proves two things:
(1) The mallard hunting around Many Point Lake was mighty good;
(2) That Earl then as now, was “advertising conscious” – note the banners which read “Fuller’s Hardware Sells Good Goods.”
It was in 1913 that Earl took over operation of Fuller’s Hardware from his Dad the late F.A. Fuller who established the business in 1891 at the site of the present American Legion Club, next door to the present Fuller’s Tackle Shop.
The automobile? It was a 1913 Ford.

Most of these remember whens were in the newspaper in 1962.
2012… Remember the tackle shop on main street with the fish on ice in the window? I have a photo someplace.. I will look for it.
I remember when the American Legion Club was on Main Street. Do you? Which building is in that spot now?
I think that Fuller’s Tackle used to be where Aunt Belle’s Confectionary is now? Please correct me if I am wrong. Aunt Belles street address is 110 Main Avenue South.
The museum is closed for the winter. We are busy painting while the weather is warm. Please join us for the Annual Meeting on October 29, 2012. Elections will be held. Refreshments will be served. The meeting will be held in the lower level of the new courthouse at 7PM. Everyone is welcome!
