Place was called Harvey Williams and they sold bicycles. What's neat was my Aunt Doris bought me a bicycle at Harvey Williams for a Christmas gift when I was 8 years old. Neat red bike with white-walled tires, a horn and small fake leather bag that was attached to the rear of the seat. No hand brakes or different speeds; just a neat old bike that I loved. The photo that was featured on Facebook was from 1915, a few years before Aunt Doris bought my bike. Actually, quite a few years!! The building at 626-628 West Orange Street was owned and operated by Harvey R. Williams from before World War I until he died in 1940.
