Lumbering in Ypsi

While at my parents’ this past weekend I found a 1959 catalogue for a Fingerle, Hollister, and Wood Lumber Co., an old lumber company that once existed on E. Michigan Ave. in my hometown of Ypsilanti, MI.

While the Fingerle Lumber Company still exists in Ann Arbor, the Fingerle, Hollister, and Wood joint store has been gone long enough that my Dad is the only family member who remembers it, having grown up in the area in the ’60’s.

I loved looking through the catalogue to see the ads, illustrations, design, tools, and lumber of the 1950’s.
