Mr. Treleven's tailor shop was located at 132 Main Street, approximately where the old Gibson Chevrolet dealership later resided. This biographical sketch, from the June, 1898 Semi-Centennial edition of the Menasha Press featured his likeness, which for the time, showed a rising trend in the tonsorial trade- the clean-shaven gentleman. By 1911, newspaper accounts place him in the employ of the Onward Manufacturing Company, coincidentally the employer located next door to his tailor shop. More on it tomorrow.
