This photograph from the collection of Marjean Bondele, South Wayne, came as a result of the Friday photographs featured in The Monroe Times. Marjean shared this after seeing the photographs every Friday, knowing that it was taken on the Square before her mother was married. A little investigation revealed the photo was taken about 1922 and shows the inside of the Metropolitan 5 to 50 Cent Store. It was located on the southeast corner of the Square in the building that later housed Blumer Pharmacy and Schultz Pharmacy. Marjeans mother, Elsa Priewe, is shown on the right. Elizabeth K. Ross, possibly one of the other ladies shown, managed the store at that time. Signs for stationery, ribbons, and toilet articles show some of the variety of items sold in the store. The Green County Historical Society is interested in obtaining photographs, which might be included in an upcoming book. If you have one (or several) that may be copied, contact Matt Figi at mfigi48@tds.net or 608-325-6503. (Photo supplied by the Green County Historical Society)
