OK, even moderately attentive browsers of these pages will note that the above two center images are, except for the captions, identical.  It’s  how  they’re listed in the  original.  An error in the original?  It was Elliston’s Building, but Glascock rented from him?  Elliston was on one side; Glascock was on the other? We don’t know. If you do, please help us out.  Contact us here

 

“Will R. Elliston, the Main street grocer, has a beautiful store stocked with all of the Christmas novelties and attractions.  His goods are of the latest design and patterns and his candies and nuts are of the newest and best stocks of the market.  Lamps, glassware, chinaware in fancy pieces, dozens of novelties in china; also fruits, raisins, oranges, bananas, mixed and stick candy.  If you want a good time Xmas go to Elliston’s grocery and he will give it to you.” From the Williamstown Courier, December 22, 1898
