My Great-Great Grandfather

My Great-Great Grandfather s the Stuart in Stuart-Bernstein! George W Stuart. So cool to have found this photo. My Grandmother (who will be 96 this year) remembered family stories about her Grandaddy Stuart owning this clothing store. He died in 1908 before she was born, just a few years after they opened the store. Really would like to find a photo of the two men in front of the store, but haven't been able to find such a thing!

McCall Pattern

The McCall Pattern Company, still in business, is a privately owned, worldwide company that designs, manufactures and sells sewing patterns under the brand names of Butterick, Kwik Sew, McCall's and Vogue Patterns, through fabric retailers and on their websites.

Question

Is that an incandescent light hanging there, or an old style arc light?

Today

Found this website while trying to find the address of the shot shown above. 130 W. Adams. Google maps shows building still there - but of course nothing like it was.

All I ask

is 15 minutes in Furchgott's with $100 in 1904 bills, and I'd never ask for another thing as long as I lived!
