Fred Loescher Buffet -1913

November 3, 1924 Appleton Post-Crescent

Originally known as Fred Loescher's Sample Room, this ediface, with an address of 156 Main Street was really on the circle at the corner of Chute Street and Milwaukee, right next door to the Bank of Menasha.  We don't often remember that there was a time when the Bank of Menasha did not occupy ALL that space.  (The photo below gives a better perspective of what I'm talking about.)  Fred's better known sibling, George, ran the hardware store at the other end of Main Street, where Druck's Electric and, later Club Liquors would later reside.
