(18) 524 E. Third Street

524 E Third"A wagon shop was next to Batterman's machine shop in the late 1800s. Later a new building housed Dell Beach's jewelry shop. Beach sold to Rod Cubberley and moved to Valparaiso. Cubberly subsequently moved to Main Street and Dick Wheaton had an appliance store here until the Harvey Dime Store fire. Since then it has been a liquor store. On the alley was situated a motorcycle shop, then a saloon, later a barber shop before it became Dollstedt's meat market, then Maurer's Market."

Images (links open in a new window):
♦ The M.W. Jory wagon shop may be the wagon shop referred to in this item; there seems to be some uncertainty about its precise location (see Item 17 above).
♦ Handwritten notes on the back of this photo identify it as the "Dell F. Beach jewelry store before 1920" but give no location; I'm placing it here for the moment.
♦ Inside Maurer's Meats in 1977.
