On July 29, 1912 Florence Beal and Maude Folk took possession of Miss Whittie’s millinery shop and it’s stock.
“Having purchased the millinery business from Miss Kate Whittie, we invite all her old customers and many new ones to call and see us.
We have been in Chicago and Des Moines studying styles and bought a fine new stock of Fall goods which will be on display in a few days.
We are now located in Miss Whittie’s old stand where we bid you all a welcome.”
