GEORGE GRESSO manufactures boots and shoes for the local trade. He occupies the two story brown frame opposite the American house. He works two or three hands and sells nothing but his own work, which he takes pride in making as neat, durable and cheap as can be found in any other house in the county.

GEORGE GRESSO, manufacturer of boots and shoes, is located on the South side of Main street, opposite Lowry's dry goods store. He has been engaged in the business here for the past twelve years, and deals only in work of his own manufacture. Mr. G. employs a number of hands and takes right hold himself as though he meant business. His work is made of the best material and warranted as good as can be bought elsewhere for the money. He aims to do as near a cash business as possible.
