CHAPTER VI.

The little old lady began to chuckle to herself and explained the occasion for her hilarity. She was reminded of some more stories which she would relate after she read me a few more of the signs that could be seen on Morrison Street in A. D. 1999.

“There is Jaeger Brothers, jewelers, G. Heitkemper, in the same business. Buffum & Pendleton's kin are located on Morrison Street and are conducting a general hat and clothing store.

“The name Honeyman is quite in evidence in various parts of the city whose antecendents are old Portland stock.

“The name Gill is seen in three different parts of the city, and are all engaged in the book and stationery business.

“L. Mayer's descendants are engaged in a wholesale grocery business away up town and are prosperous.

“Harold Von Stein Hansen is an enthusiastic leader of the Socialist party, his great grandfather being one of the leaders of that party in the early 1900's.

“There are a couple of gentlemen in business whose progenitors were favorably known. I refer to Messrs. Kraner & Stose, whose names appear on a sign on Morrison Street.

“Strange to say that Broadway is the leading street of the city. The cutting away of the Seventh Street hill and the three bridges connecting Portland with the State of Washington has been a factor in the upbuilding of this thoroughfare.

“Many newcomers are in business on this street and the names would be strange to you.
