Though today architecture favors sharp, simplistic shapes, DeMers Avenue hasn’t strayed far from this Image. This image is from 1938 found in A Meeting of the Reds: East Grand Forks 1887-1987, Volume 2. Page 649. Back when neon signs were in its golden years from 1923 to the late 1950s. And though neon gave way to LED lights, it still shines an aesthetic light on history.

In 1930, Edwin “Whitey” Larson built the first stainless steel horseshoe bar, in the U.S.A. Thus his bar was named “Whitey’s Wonderbar.” Made in the days of Prohibition, the bar still resides at Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews in downtown East Grand Forks. And in 1939, was featured in the Saturday Evening Post and Time Magazine, for its unique art deco design.
Image found in A Meeting of the Reds: East Grand Forks 1887-1987, Volume 2. Page 299.
