Learned from this historical review. Sioux City had two downtown Younker stores within a block of each other. Younker Martin and Younker Davidson. The Davidson (yes Jewish) family built a business, remarkable structures and a reputation of excellent service. I grew up in a neighborhood with Jewish families, two synagogues and bagels. Great experience with a variety of cultures, religions, professions, and politics. I learned about DEI before it was a thing. Keep writing Arnold, you have much to share.

Great and vital history! I particularly loved Celia's question to the robbers. Maybe you can also tell us about Nebraska Furniture Mart sometime (though I am sure several writers have tackled that one already)?
