This is an interior shot of the Rurode Dry Goods Company Department Store. This enormous emporium of turn-of-the-century consumer stuff probably featured everything that one could not get at the grocery store or farmer supply store. The Rurode Co. was located at (the corner of) 708-712 Calhoun Street, and 111-115 West Main Street. Photo from: Fort Wayne with Might and Main, published in 1911 (subtitled “Indiana’s Busiest, Happiest City”).
