New brick buildings were erected following the 1898 and 1905 fires. The buildings that housed many of the businesses who advertised in the Spartansburg Sentinel and Titusville Herald are still in use today.
1914 Ad- Notice the phone number. The Winans Block was to the right of the IOOF Building.
CL Rexford advertised Drugs, Jewelry and Notions- Chicken feed must have been a “notion”
The CL Rexford Company was busy in 1917-obviously expanding from Jewelry and Drugs to other things that folks in town needed.
They continued in business in 1920, adding electronics to their offerings.
The merchants in Spartansburg wanted to be sure that folks were purchasing things they could afford to pay for- with a Credit Guide-Check before you buy….
I wonder if Rexford’s $37.50 radio could pull in KDKA when it came to life in 1920- Pittsburgh is closer than Schenectady (mentioned in the ad)
1921 brought ads from Burlinghams and from Ruggles Ford
1922-Rexford is selling paint- and the mill is now owned by a Platt!
