1927 Milwaukee Paper--Racine ..Chris Christensen Racine's veteran horseshoer, whose shop on State Street is one of Belle City landmarks is going to retire.
"And I am not quitting because the automobile has taken the place of the horse." he wants the world to know."Far from it. There plenty of horses in Racine today to keep me busy. Too many in fact , but the craft itself is dying out and inasmuch as I am unable to hire a able horseshoer. I have decided to quit while my health is good."
But his son "Augie" is going to use the old shop as a garage!
