Photo of St. Ansgar, Iowa, taken about 1920 (give or take 20 years).   It is looking east on "Main Street" (Fourth St.).   The building on the left later became Al Jordan's Gambles Store and a restaurant with Sherwin Kittleson's barber shop in the basement; the next one was Charlie West's clothing store, St. Ansgar Citizen's State Bank.   Photo supplied to us by Barbara McCoy, from Stella Swensrud's photo album, courtesy of Stella's son, Daniel Little.
