mm The Good Old Days No. 13 Being n scries of old-time pictures showing scenes oJF Algona and this store, and used In connection with our present Diamond Jubilee year celebration. s old photograph was taken in the year 1886 front -point of the present Borchardt Drug store and looks across the street to the block now occupied by the Council Oak Grocery and the present CHRIS- CfflLLES STORE. The barber pole that stands out so prominently belonged to Chris Heisc who had his shop in the building now occupied by the Mainliner Cafe shortly after he had built the "block," which still bears his name, in 1876. Apparently this was one of the "big snows" in the history of Algona altho there are many later pictures •which also emphasize the fact that our winters were plenty rugged in the past. Looking diagonally across the street from the present Mainliner to the present Council Oak the old frame buildings are (1) Galbraith's, Dry Goods, Carpets and Millinery, (2) Watch Shop, (3) T. Chrischilles Dry Goods and Groceries. These three stores were destroyed by a mysterious fire sometime later in 1886. Other buildings in this block are Robinson Hardware (two-story brick in center of block) and old Kossuth County State Bank (two-story brick) at the opposite ' ' ,. . • .• - s . j corner. ife,,..
