The New Meat Market

Business news from the December 21, 1900 edition of the Skidmore Standard, page 1:

Before another issue of the Standard is mailed, Skidmore will have – for the first time in the town’s history – a really modern, up-to-date meat market. Mr. Diggs has furnished half of his building with a very fine refrigerator, counter with marble top, meat blocks and every essential needed in a well appointed meat market. B. Carr will begin moving into the building this afternoon, and he promises to sell the people just the kind of meat that should be sold from that kind of a shop. A partition extends lengthwise of the building and the west half will be fitted up for a barber shop. Chas. Beverlin will occupy it.
