Oscar Dally's carFrom Lou Gramsey:

I have Dolly’s car. He would drive Margaret to school some days and pick my dad and aunt up on the way. My mom could remember him driving that up to Minneapolis on Thursdays. He would pick up his supplies there. A few years back Rosemount had its all class reunion and my aunt was the oldest alumnus. I drove her around the football field before the game

Shown is Lois Gramsey Brama and she’s amazing, 94 years old and still living in her own house on her own. She remembers the Armistice Day blizzard. She was in school at Rosemount and it took her 2 days to get home at Crystal Lake!! She also remembers the day she got off the bus and their house had electric lights!! The kids on the bus uudd and aahh’d. I forget what year she graduated.

Ackerman's Furniture RepairLocated on Highway 13 - Since 1895, Ackerman’s has been a trusted name for quality furniture repair, furniture refinishing, and furniture reupholstering. In each of their three locations — Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Chicago, and Denver.

Ackerman’s Furniture Service is the leader in fine furniture restoration. Being involved in furniture has always been a part of our lives.

From their website:

Our great great grandfather, Daniel Gephart, started a furniture business in Lakeville, Minnesota in 1895. In the 1940s, Ackerman’s continued this tradition by establishing the largest furniture showroom in the Midwest along Freeway I-494 in Bloomington. After leaving the retail industry, the next generation of Ackerman's transitioned into restoring furniture.
