Out of the attic

 

N-Out-of-attic-Old-photo-73-S-Main-webBy Judy Reed

The Post recently received an old photo from reader Jennifer Bell. She said that her family has lived in Cedar Springs for many years, and that her grandfather, Orville Moore, recently passed away. Before he died, he passed on quite a few old photos to Jennifer’s sister. One of them is of a building they think is 73 S. Main, where there is currently a pet grooming shop. Jennifer said all she knew was that back when the photo was taken, a woman named Rose ran the store.

“We’re not exactly sure her exact relation to us but it’s pretty neat for us to have a photo this old and thought we would share,” she said.

73 S. Main Street today is the home to Peacock Pet Parlor.

We passed this photo on Sharon Jett at the Cedar Springs Historical Museum, and she agreed that the building looks like 73 S. Main. She directed us to page 211 in the Cedar Springs Story by Sue Harrison and Donna DeJonge, which lists three millinery shops in the building from 1885-1931. From 1908 to 1931, it was run by a Mrs. Rose Dorman, which could be the Rose that Jennifer mentioned.

We thank Jennifer for sending us the photo, and Sharon, of the Cedar Springs Historical Museum, for helping us with the information.
