Most of the month of January has been spent looking at the dismantling of an old building in the northeast quadrant, which took place in September, 2010. At about the same time, Doug Burnie of the Fowlerville Hardware store mentioned he had something interesting to show me. Well, he certainly did!
While Doug was doing some repair work and updating for winter of a couple windows on the second floor of his store, north side, he came across a piece of wood that was used as trim for one of the windows. For all these years, the side showing was blank, but when he checked out the other side, it was a 12-foot long sign for F.J. Cook Hardware.
This is the window and, starting with tomorrow's squint shot, there will be a lot more information on F.J. Cook.
