Samuelson Shoes - A cousin of mine sent a link to your blog, and I just finished perusing it. Unless I missed it, I did not see any mention of Samuelson's Shoe Store. Established in 1899, it was a mainstay on North Main Street until moving to a mall location probably in the 1970s. I remember that at one time (late 1940s/early '50s?) they had an X-ray device there where you could see the bones in your feet. The proprietors at that time were high school classmates of my father, and we often used their store as a convenient meeting place when we had scattered in town on various errands.
