Walter A. Frey Funeral Home Open House - June 15, 1958

I've written about Walter A. Frey Funeral Home a few times.

Back here, I did a "then and now" feature on the building using a photo from a 1945 ad, and back here, I mentioned the home as being the former home of Lorain Mayor George Wickens.

Above is an ad that ran in the Lorain Journal announcing an Open House of the newly redecorated building on June 15, 1958 – 56 years ago yesterday.

Every guest that took the tour of the new building received a free gift. I wonder what it was?

Anyway, it's great to see two of Lorain's oldest businesses – Walter A. Frey Funeral Home and Muzik Brothers side by side on U. S. 6 next to Lorain City Hall.

and as we have discovered there is always MORE to the story Oh dear George whatever did you get up to? Kissed the girls or girl and made her cry - coming soon in the attractions ;)

Maybe you could run a post on Brown's, which has been down on Broadway for ages.

I went to school with Irving Brown, whose family was associated with the Brown funeral home. For that matter, I also went to school at Admiral King with the Carters of the Carter Funeral Home.

I'd forgotten about Carter's! I used to run into the older Carter brothers out and about, BITD.
