L. A. Cook & Co. was located on the corner of Main and Federal Streets. The business is listed in the 1885 business directory, but not the 1880. Although this card shows women's fashion, by 1902 it seems that they are focusing on men's clothing, and by 1905, men's, boy's and children's clothing are all that are advertised. This trade card is printed in vibrant colors and advertises one of the "Nobbiest" or most fashionable line of goods.
