Vaupel Clothier

Real photo postcard with the Vaupel Clothier sign at the right and center. This block of Galena Street in Freeport, Illinois and the Vaupel store were captured in at least 2 real photo postcards during the 44th Grand Army of the Republic (Civil War Veterans) Encampment in 1910. John Vaupel was my third great uncle, brother of my great-great grandmother, Christina Vaupel Blumenstiel. He immigrated to Freeport from Reichensachsen, Hessen in 1880, and was followed by my great-great grandparents. #genealogy #familyhistory #freeportillinois #falknerjarrell #vaupelgenealogy #vaupel #blumenstielgenealogy #blumenstiel #oldphotos #storefront #clothingstore #johnvaupel #johnvaupelclothier #advertising #vintageadvertising #gar #grandarmyoftherepublic #rppc #postcard #postcards #oldstore #oldstores #ancestors #ancestor #freeportil #1900s #civilwarreenactment #civilwar #gar #grandarmyoftherepublic #patriotic #flags
