I see Lapp’s Bee Supply is missing…from near Portage Wisconsin. I was there and bought some stuff in person in October 1994.
Most of those other names were there 25 years ago. I used to visit Walter T Kelly Co. about the time Mr. Kelly passed. (By the way, beeswax burns mighty hot… I had just posted on TheCityman and his fire tragedy.)
Wow, what a line-up! I happened upon a bee keeper’s card posted on a wall in a diner we ate at. She is only 15 min away and I reserved some nuc for the spring. I felt really fortunate to see that card!
