Lander in Fremont County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
To the right, the tall angular building, just down the street was the Bossert Building built by T.J. Bossier in 1893-1894. Bossert was the first to operate his store on a cash only basis. The building was later used as a theater and still later as a Piggly Wiggly Store. The Amoretti and Bossert buildings are still standing.The JK. Moore building was torn down in 1917 to make way for the Lander Auto Building. It was the Zanetti Bus Barn when it collapsed under the weight of snow in 1985. This photo probably dates from 1912-1915. -- Tom Bell - 1991
