Paint Store

Today's picture shows the front of a paint store in Shelly, Minnesota. The picture was taken in 1913. It looks almost like the town is just being built, so a paint store would probably have lots of business.


  1. I live close to Shelly, MN in a town called Ada. It is fun to see an old photo from this area on your post. Thanks!

  2. Apparently these painters don't have a ladder. Why would you put your sign below the window? Wouldn't you want it above the window so that everyone can see it?

  3. Yes, that false front is just crying for some big signage. Maybe they haven't had time to paint it yet?
