In 1985, the three two-story building facing East Grand River in the southeast quadrant were photographed for the following year's 150 celebration in 1986. This picture was used in a special edition of the newspaper and I also used it in my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles. In 1985, Ruth's Resale used the first two buildings from the right and the bank was using the far left building.
One item of note, is the bank sign at the far right. When that was no longer needed, it was moved to the southwest corner as a welcome sign for the village. Tomorrow's squint shots will show 'then and now' pictures to wrap up this series of matching old with current day photographs.
