Bode Brothers store, C.E. Dewey, January 12, 1941.

This view of Bode Brothers Store was taken from 55th Street just west of Sixth Avenue. It shows part of the
approach to Sixth Avenue bridge, and at the rear of the store can be seen a part of one of the Simmons Company
factory buildings. Bode Brothers was prominent in Kenosha's retail business starting in 1894. The Hub Furniture
Company and the Furniture Exchange were also a part of Bode Brothers. The building was built in 1883, and
destroyed by arson on Super Bowl Sunday (Jan 26th) 1986. Firefighters were inhibited by -40 degree wind chill, and
two firefighters were injured in the effort. The ice was so thick that some firefighting equipment was left on site for
a week until they could be melted free. Photo copyright of the Kenosha County Historical Society.
