1905 L.S. Palmerton Lunchroom
While doing additional research, this time for Through the Eyes of a Country Editor, I found the date of this picture. An article in 1905 in The Fowlerville Review, read as follows:
L.S. Palmerton has rented the building formerly occupied as a millinery shop, first door north of McIntosh & Stevens, and has opened his restaurant business there.
Curiously, only a mere couple of months later, the following was found:
L.S. Palmerton has closed his lunchroom and gone out of business.
The building recently occupied by L.S. Palmerton has been rented to Lansing parties, who will conduct a fruit and confectionery store, so we understand.
This storefront was bought by the Novara family and would someday become the storefront purchased by the Spagnuolo family.
