The Old Mill Market at 332 Throckmorton Avenue. William and Minna Thran purchased the store at 332 Throckmorton Avenue on May 24, 1949. They remodeled the store about 1952 and covered up the Hikers' Map on the side of the building with shingles. The map had been painted by a former proprieter who had tired of answering directional questions about local trails. The photo features a young woman, possibly the Thrans' daughter Erna Joan, standing to the side of the map. The child sitting at the corner of the building may be the Thrans' son, Robert, also known as "Pinky". This is the same image as MVU2701.
