Acquisition No.: 2014-08B
Title: Advertising Print; L. B. Frommeyer.
Item History:

John H. Weaver's ownership of Weavers Hardware Store at 1 East Hanover Street in Bonneauville spanned a large part of the mid-20th Century. His advertising print of the Blessed Virgin Mary was found in a green wooden frame of 13 ½" x 18 ½". The glass was broken. Behind the Weaver advertisement was this Frommeyer piece.

Text on the Frommeyer advertisement reads; "Purina Chows" and "L. B. Frommeyer, Grain, Feed, Fertilizer, Lime, Etc., Phone Gettysburg 966-r-13, R. D. No. 5, Gettysburg, PA."

Mr. L. B. Frommeyer operated a feed store on East Hanover Street in Bonneauville. His primary feed mill was located in Littlestown. There was a two story house beside his feed store in Bonneauville which he called home. Both the old house and the feed store have since been converted into apartments.
