Jacobson Hardware – Delivery wagon –
In the early days the deliveries for Jacobson- Fugelso Hardware were carried out with by a horse drawn wagon. The horse was name Prince and had been Fugelso’s buggy horse before he became a partner in the hardware store. Prince, attached to the wagon, would wait patiently between deliveries in front of the store (now the Taube Museum). If Prince became thirsty he went , wagon and all, to the corner water fountain, satisfied his thirst and then returned to his post, carefully backing the wagon into its former position and continued to wait for the next delivery. The six o’clock whistle indicated the work day was over for himself and everyone else.
