ull & Chase.
The Dull & Chase store was photographed around 1890. It was located just west of the I.O.O.F. building on the south side of Lima street. For many years there was a house located at the spot of the Dull & Chase location so the building holding Dull & Chase was probably torn down before 1900. That house was razed before 2010.
Around the photograph are close-ups of the individuals seen in the photograph. No information about these individuals is known.
"Whitey" Hafer is seen in these photographs while painting the outside of his barber shop. The shop was located on the north side of west Lima street where the current post office is now located. Whitey sold his business later to George Buxton who ran the shop for many years. George was considered to be one of the best barbers around.
At one time, Lolo (Witzer) Jaquith ran a millinery shop at this location. Lolo was the wife of R. "Bert" Jaquith, the editor of the Forest Review. Whitey must have closed his barber shop during the time of this photograph because the sign written on the window indicates that the "shop is closed" and has moved to the other side of Lima street.
Dick Boyd's drug store on the north side of Lima street, later the Style Shop can be seen below in a circa 1953 photograph with Hempy Appliance. The two automobiles seen in the photograph are a 1946 and a 1950 Chevorlet.

The brick house to the left of the drug store was used as the Zimmerman dentist office and at one time a funeral home.
