ALBION – Perchance this photo was taken on Flag Day during the 1940s in downtown Albion.

Walter’s dress shop shows to the left before it moved up the street. This is now Fischer’s Newsroom.

In the middle we see Harris Freemans Drug Store, which later was owned by Marvin and Alice Sayles. On the corner is the Charles Tibbits Jewelry Store. We also note DeLuca’s Shoe Repair sign above Walter’s dress shop.
