The Good Old Days No. 7 Being n series of old-time pictures showing scenes of Aigonn. and this store, and used in connection with our present Diamond Jubilee year celebration. This is an interior view of the old Armory, which occupied the 44 feet in the two vacant lots just west of the present Pratt Electric Company's new building. The early history of this rather famous old frame building is somewhat shrouded in mystery altho these facts have been assembled. From all reports we can gather, the old Armory was built by a Mr. Waldo of Humboldt about the year 1887 as a roller skating rink. Company F took the building over in the early '90's as their headquarters and from then on it grew in the imaginative minds of Algonians, old and young. We can still remember the rifles lined up against the wall and the "lockers" with uniforms in the front room. The Armory was really the social center of Algona. The Annual Bean Supper, sponsored by the G. A. R. was held here as well as dances and various large banquets. August Sterzbach used it for his dancin? classes and it was here that many of us learned the old fashioned waltz and the then^popular schottische. It was th(§ home of the 57th Regimental band, one of the outstanding military bands in the entire state. High School basket ball was born (and thrived) in the building and there is scarcely an old-timer living in Algona who could not add to the illustrious history of the Armory. In its later years, it served as an implement store for first, W. E. McDonald and later for P. J. Greiner followed by several garages. A few years ago, the old structure became so unsafe that it was torn down but it will always remain a pleasant memory to Algonians who spent many enjoyable evenings under its old tar-paper roof.
