Samson Hardware Float Plane

This is my favorite photo of the Old Samson Hardware. It was taken post-WWII 1940’s. I love how the floatplane ties up to shore along with the boats to pick up supplies.

The Rose Building is in the background. It was also on the NRHP, but it was one of the first torn down for the duplicate bridge and road rerouting.
