Note:  I particularly like this view of the Peoria County Courthouse because my grandmother, Madge Montgomery worked in the domed building to the right of it.
It was the First National Bank Building.  She worked as a legal secretary for a law firm by the name of Black, Black & Borden for 50 years, retiring in 1967.
She visited the Peoria County Courthouse often in search of anything that would help court cases.
There was the Walgreen's Drug store on the first floor of the building and a Magazine stand that was ran by a blind man.  He could tell what denomination of monies by the feel of it and most people were very honest with him.  I really never heard of anyone trying to cheat him.
This picture brings back lots of memories of me and my children visiting grandma while she worked.  She is the reason that I love to type, and collect all kinds of pens and stationary products.  She is the reason I got into genealogy research.  She had started the search of our family tree way before I she died in 1968 and I didn't start until 1981.
She was researching our connection to the Family of Wyatt Earp.  My great great grandmother's name was Milly Ann Earp.
