Reese Brothers Buy Cement Block Factory, 1922

From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), April 6, 1922, page 1:

Buy Cement Block Factory.
The cement block factory and tile and coal business formerly conducted by Charles & Son, was purchased recently by Elmer and Lansing Reese. They have laid in a supply of tile and coal, and are now making cement blocks.

Elmer, who is in charge of the plant, has had many years experience in cement work, and will no doubt turn out as good blocks as can be made.

Advertisement reads, "Building Material. Cement Blocks. Coal. Hollow Tile. See us before building. Service and quality. Reese Coal & Block Co. Elmer Reese, Manager, Skidmore, Missouri."
