Sherman opens new store

Alonzo Sherman has opened a bicycle shop in the store in the Pasko block formerly occupied by Orson R. Wilsey. He will sell the Dayton & Hayerford wheels and do repairing. He is also agent for the Alfred Peat and Potter wallpapers of which he shows a fine line of samples. (Note: Alonzo Sherman was the father of Francis “Frank” Sherman who has owned a motorcycle shop, just above the cemetery, for many years on upper 174 Hudson St., Warrensburgh. The Alexander Pasko block was just south of today’s Floyd Bennett bandstand.)
