Arthur Tucker's hardware store on Main Street, Warren, about 1940. Arthur's longtime employee William G. "Bill" Wood is standing next to the gas pump. The top floor was rented out as the Masons' hall, and the second floor served variously as a millinery, a doctor's office, a hairdressers, and living quarters. After Arthur died in 1945, the store was taken over by his 15 year old grandson Bob Buck with help from his parents, until he purchased the business from them in 1955. In later years, Bob and his wife Sylvia renovated the second floor apartment and lived above the store.
