Hardware / Heating

Seen (or scene?) from my recent trip through Paris.  Paris, ILLINOIS, of course.  The rusted sign really caught my fancy.  Here's the full building:

S.W.Yontz & Son Hardware.  I couldn't find much on the internet.  Apparently SW Yontz started in 1910 in Chrisman IL, a few miles north of Paris.  In 1920 they opened a store in Paris, and another in 1925.  This seems to be the 1925 store ("This store is now located on the east side of the square in Paris and managed by Karl Yontz, Jr")...
