The Popcorn wagon   

The popcorn wagon was a well known asset of the candy store.    The following is a sequence of events that I have pieced together from the newspaper articles shown below:

     1907 - The popcorn wagon appears on A street
     1914 - My grandfather lends his popcorn wagon to a crippled invalid vendor who has his wagon stolen
     1922 - The city council passes an ordinance against items being placed on the city streets and removes the popcorn wagon.
                My grandfather holds a funeral service for it.
     1935 - The popcorn wagon is resurrected
	 
In the 1924 store photo you can see the popcorn wagon tucked away under the address of 230.
