1905 Hamilton's Advertisement

Here is a sample of what an advertisement looked like in the early 1900s, as published in The Fowlerville Review, for the Hamilton's store that was located at the southeast corner of East Grand River and South Grand Avenue. In later years, 1969 to be exact, this store closed and soon became Ruth's Resale. Ruth ran this storefront, as well as the one directly to its east, for about 30 years before it was also closed. Extensive refurbishing has been done over the years to the outside of the building and the second storefront has been totally redone, but the first floor directly on the corner is still in an early stage of repair. Both first floors are currently empty.
