E. D. French to Modernize Home, 1916

Springtime often sparks a renewed interest in home updates.  Just as it is today, this was true in Skidmore, Missouri in 1916.  From the May 25, 1916 Skidmore News, page 1:

E. D. French to Modernize Home.

In the near future, E. D. French intends to have his home remodeled and made larger, adding all the modern improvements.

He intends to build one room on to the house and add another story with three rooms in the upper story.  This will make his place an attractive piece of property when finished.
