Granert's truck sale

This is a picture of employees for Bob Granert's clothing factory at the northwest edge of Minonk around 1952. The trucks behind the employees were set up to create an enclosure for selling Granert's clothing. The sides on each truck would fold up and create a roof for sheltering the clothes on display. Granert would hold these outdoor sales periodically during the warm weather seasons.

The picture is the courtesy of Ernie Froman who worked at Granert's clothing factory from 1947-1953.
