Diggs Builds Meat Market, 1900

Business news from the October 5, 1900 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

W. L. Diggs will Build

A new brick building is to be erected on the vacant lot between the Cook building and E. T. Duval’s building. W. L. Diggs is the promoter of the enterprise and he assured a Standard reporter that nothing but the best material will be used and that everything will be done to make the building a credit to the town. He purchased the lot the latter part of last week and has been figuring with contractors this week.

The building will be designed for a meat market. It will be 25 feet wide by 70 feet in length.

Mr. Diggs has selected a very fine cooler to be placed in the building and when it is completed, Skidmore will have a meat market that we can all feel proud of.
