4th & Jefferson – 1913 Flood

This picture postcard is a view to the east, at the corner of 4th and Jefferson Streets. The house on the left, at the northwest corner of the intersection, belonged to Beardstown businessman and First State Bank President, Werner Steuernagel. The Logsdon-Todd grocery building has been the home of the Central Tavern and several other business over the years.

When the photograph is enlarged, one of the Eberwein lions can be seen behind a tree, a few feet from its current location – the showroom of the Knipmeyer car dealership.
