Western Springs Fruit Store Opened in 1927

Just as today, the store was located at 925 Burlington Avenue, across the street from the train station. In those days, they had to get up at 2 a.m., hitch up a horse and wagon, and travel to the Chicago produce markets where they would purchase the best fruit and vegetables available. And, when one of the boys went into the military service, his sister, Sally, worked in the store to help out. See third photo.
