The two photographs pictured with this story absolutely captivated me from the first moment I saw them. Why? Both pictures are of the same house.
Home and business of tailor, Louis Schutz, and his seamstress sister, Anna, the address was 215 S. Fourth St., across the street from Gloria’s Christian Supply.
The one-story structure is very old, probably older than Louie Schutz, who was born 1877 in Vandalia. This photo dates to the early 1900s.
