Larry found this photo of the C. W. Bouck hardware store in turn-of-the-last-century Royalton, Minnesota. I didn't recognize it, but it was probably still standing when I was a kid.
So, I set out to find where it was in town. These next three photos are from a website that's sadly no longer online.
Ah, there it is, on Center Street, the main east/west road thru town. If you followed this street, you'd cross the Platte on the old iron bridge, and eventually you'd be in Little Rock.
Another view from closer to Front Street (highway 10). Of the buildings in these photos, the only ones still standing are the nearest ones on the left and right in this ► photo. Too bad!
◄ Interior of the store. Just LOOK at all the wood stoves along the left wall. Wow!
Thanks, Larry ☺ !!
