1436 Junction Avenue

Dennis Tully: This photo which was taken in the 1930’s shows Jens Norgaard’s Tavern at 1436 Junction Avenue. Jens also ran his bowling alley next door to the south. That later was Junction Bowling Alleys.
Dennis Tully: Ownership and business names changed many times over the years, which included Paul’s Office, The Landing, Murphy’s, Kelsey’s, Peg and Lou’s, Brass Monkey and Truth Sports Bar. Mentioned in these posts in the past, Paul’s Office had the best hot beef sandwiches in Racine.
Don Bultman: Me behind the bar when I owned the Landing. 1977-1984

Pat Coulter: Thanks for sharing this. My husband and I owned this bar. We sold it to Peg and Lou. Made a lot of great friends there.

Pat Coulter: Here’s a couple of pictures from Bullet Club!

James Norgaard going out of the restaurant business in March 12, 1920. Could this be the result of the effect of National Prohibition on Racine businesses?
