It was a popular time for men’s high-end clothing in Owensboro in the 1890’s. This extremely popular service was located at 303 Frederica St, just north of the current Kurtz Auction building. Rice E. Berkshire and Chester A. LaRue were proprietors. At any time, men’s clothing could be picked up, cleaned, pressed, and repaired if necessary, then delivered by it’s familiar horse and wagon. All of this was done for $1.00 per month for members and included unlimited shoe shines.
