Bulsterbaum candy store.  The people in the photo are unidentified.  The date of the photo is also unknown, but my guess is around the turn of the 20th century.  The Times 20th Century Directory lists 3 Bulsterbaums, (i) Eliz., widow of Herman, confectr., (ii) Gustav, finisher and (iii) Miss Hulda H.  All are listed at 908 W. 3rd Street.

My g-grandparents Jacob Frost and Elsa Marie Jeppesen Frost.  Their son (my grandfather) John D. Frost, is on the horse in the background.  According to an inscription by my grandfather on the back of the photo, it was taken in their garden around 1911.  The location would have been their home on Rockingham Road (between Clark and Rolfe streets) in Davenport.

Ad for Henry Claussen, plumber, from a German language newspaper.  I don't know the paper, but I believe it would have been from Davenport around the turn of the 20th century.

My g-grandfather Henry C. Claussen in his plumber shop at 816 W. 3rd Street, Davenport.  I can't read a date on the calendar in the background but I have an almanac that shows November 1 was a Sunday in 1924 (as well as 1884 and 1954).  Since Henry was born in 1872, I believe the picture was taken in 1924.
