1. Baumoel's Marker
Inscription.  For women's clothing, jewelry, gloves, and shoes Baumoel's was the place. Complete with its own glove fitting station, Baumoel's was equipped to satisfy women and young folk. Baumoel's had a change conveyor to transport payments and bills of sale in miniature cable-cars to the second floor, and to transport change and receipts back to the sales counter. The cable-driven change conveyor was the forerunner of modern vacuum tubes now used by banks. Morris Baumoel redefined the department store with his great ideas and thus began a magnificent business that lasted nearly 100 years.
Erected 2011 by Eagle Project - Alexander Clark Neff.
