Newton Leet's Store

Every once in a while, we get a great picture and want to show you all, even if the people in the picture are not directly family.

Thanks to Eleanor Ticknor, Center Lisle's Historian, we have this picture from 'the good ole days'.

Men in the picture, L-R: Dan Ninegar, unknown, Newt Leet, Frank Edmister; we are not sure of the year.

The connection to our family--Newton Leet was the second husband of Aunt Florence Baker, sister of Byron Baker. He was a butcher.

But, I just liked this picture--with the boxes of cigars and the deer trophies overhead, it certainly looks like where all the men in town would gather for the day. And, doesn't Mr. Ninegar look like a card!

My goodness, look at all that empty space! Now imagine if this were Aunt Lil's store - we'd have trouble even finding the guys in the picture! And the deer antlers would be festooned with even more things for sale! Aunt Lil, of course, would know where every one of the zillions of things she sold was located.
