Salem P37 neg on file. 5x7 [stamp] Property of South Dakota State Historical Society Pierre, South Dakota Give photo credit to: South Dakota State Historical Society. Salem, SD This picture is one showing the east side of Main St. in the block across form the bank. The bldg. with the furniture sign on it was one occupied by W.E. Lane who sold furniture, framed pictures and ran a cabinet shop, next to the right of it was a meat shop run by Mr. Griffin, and next south was the E.H. Wilson law office and on the corner was the Ahern Brothers Drug Store which in earlier days was owned by Matt White one of the first sheriff's of the county. In the back- ground, the tall bldg. is the original Schnieder Brothers store which burned down in 1900. The man standing at the far left is Frank Kinzley, the grandfather of the Kinzley Brothers. Frank was an old time carpenter and Elmer worked for him in 1914 and got 25c and hour. Elmer Sandberg helped him build the tower on the water works bldg. which is towards the east end over the well which was used for pulling well pipe & also for hanging hose to dry. Standing next to the rack behind the engine, on the ground to the right is J hn G. Anderson and Gust Anderson-his brother was leaning against the engine wheels. They were early day merchants in Salem. Elmer think this might be on of Swanson's rigs or possibly on to who was the prominent thresher in Lake County about 6 miles north to Center. About 1900.
