Cummens Restaurant, Waukon
Cummens Restaurant, Waukon

Pictured are Amelia Marsden Cummens, Arthur Cummens (with elbows on the back counter) and Jeremiah 'Dud' O'Hare (with the white apron). The men seated at the counter are not identified. I think the building may also have been a hotel or boarding house judging by the 'household' members shown in the 1925 Iowa State census: Amelia Cummans (age 67), Arthur L. Cummans (age 40), James N. Thompson (age 73), Ole T. Oleson (age 76), Andrew Olson (age 72), William F. Goettel (age 68), William Liston (age 63) and John O'Hare (age 63).

Janet reminisces: "I was ten years old and had received my first camera, an Panda. My friend and I were walking in town and decided to take an picture of where we spent alot of time on Saturdays...the girl in front of the theater is Clarice Olson.  Later in high school I worked at the Old theater for an while"

My father, Lyle Simon, and my husbands father, Colby Gleisner, were both in the Waukon Drum and Bugle Corp.
I'm not sure of the dates but they competed once in Chicago.
