Caption Simmonds Variety Store - interior
Description This is an interior view of Simmonds Variety Store, 610 Commercial. Abe Simmonds and his wife Pearl had a long association with "variety" stores. Pearl worked at Kerney's Variety Store at this same address in 1921. By 1929 Simmonds had taken over the location and opened his own variety store. The 1937 city directory noted Simmonds working at Kerney's Variety Store, again at the same address. By 1939, Simmonds had opened a paint store and moved to a new location at 711 Commercial. He remained there at least through the 1962 directory. See WF 1170 for a photo of Simmonds' home. For a panoramic view of the store's interior, combine images WF 1044, 1045, 1046.
