Downtown business during Flood of '47
Cathi Connor McDade submitted this 1947 photo of Robinson's Plumbing and Electric, which was located at 207 S. Main St., Hannibal. The man in the middle, in the entryway of the Robinson store, is her grandfather, Thomas C. Robinson. The business to the right is the Crystal Billiard and Bowling establishment, 205 S. Main. Upstairs over the Robinson's store lived Mrs. Birdie Niday. To the left, (not visible in this photo) was the Illmo Cigar Store at 209 S. Main. These businesses were located across the street and a little to the south of the Mark Twain Hotel.
