A Kroger's on the right, 300-308 Walnut, c. 1920

"These properties were built by my great-grandfather, John Butcher in the late 1800's. They consisted of the corner property (with a store fronting on Walnut St., offices in the rear with entrance from Taylor Ave, and an apartment above); the adjacent property with the sign "Ed BRAUN'S BOWLING ALLEYS."; and the two houses at 306 and 308 Walnut Street. My grandfather Ed Braun (whom I affectionately called "Pop"), is the man third from left in the picture. He and/or my grandmother Irene lived at 308 Walnut until her death in 1974. My family lived with them during and after WWII. My great-aunt Anna Butcher lived in the house at 306 Walnut most of her life until 1970. My granddad's bowling alleys also had been a tavern until Prohibition. He sold (lost?) the property due to Prohibition and the Depression. It became the WE Tavern sometime after Prohibition was repealed." from a Facebook item added by John Drach

The Dry Goods & Notions store of Bernard and Anna Hater in Bellevue, Note a nice display of postcards on the door at left. A barber pole is next to the doorway at right. The Haters lived at 336 Taylor Avenue, and the street sign mounted on the right side of the building does say "Taylor," so we assume that they lived in the house at left or in the space above the store.
