Photo of the Week, 21: Kadgihn’s, downtown Bloomington, 1921
For about a decade, from the mid-1910s to the mid-1920s, Herman Kadgihn
ran a newsstand and cigar shop at 607½ North Main Street. No one was
identified in this photograph, so it's not known if Herman is one of the
three men pictured here.
That's a rack of Bloomington-themed and novelty postcards to the right of gentleman in the middle, and the magazines hanging above him include “Mid-Week Pictorial," “Woman's Home Companion," “The People's Home Journal," “Metropolitan," “Modern Priscilla," “Shadowland," and “Fashionable Dress."
The 600 block of North Main Street was lost to urban renewal and street realignment in the 1970.
