Very soon nothing will be left except a few buildings, but the dedication and risks involved in running these early businesses have been preserved with profiles on nine local businesspeople. Starting with George Despie, people spoke about their businesses over photographs of their business establishments and those who worked there. Despie had a music store; Franciska Croxall Bale was a building contractor; Gracia Mae Ogden ran a hobby shop. Sherman Pethley had a radio shop that transformed into Academy TV when television came in. Guy Carmichael ran an automobile gasoline station from about 1924 to 1968, in North Park. Armond Viora was a locksmith who also sold locks and ground keys in his store, bought after being an apprentice there. Margaret and Dave Fearnley opened Town Pump No. 1 (a soda fountain) on Adams Avenue, then took over a cafe and made a soda fountain and lunch counter out of it, along with a third location. Others involved in the production were Charles Brockmann, Jean Castro, Lucile Sheridan, and Jim Smith.
