Independence Day 2023

Fourth of July in Hill City SD.

Fourth1881.JPGThe 1891 equivalent of one-stop shopping, D. B. Ingram & C. E. McEachron put a multitude of services under one roof. They were purveyors of Groceries, Flour, Feed, Dry Goods, Boots & Saddles, Furniture and what must have been some customers' last purchase, Undertaking.

It appears that other, more personal services were negotiable upstairs. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink! The trees decorated Main Street for a traditional July 4th celebration in the 1890's.
I have been in the U.S for 22 years. I can't remember of a 4th of July that rained in MA.
I remember several. It gets confusing because the day moves around on the calendar unlike the hallmark holidays or Thanksgiving
