The W. (William). H.H. Holswade store, located at 945 Third Avenue, was a seller of fine furniture, carpets, and undertaking fixtures.  Mr. Holswade started his professional career in Huntington as a clerk in the post office before turning his hand to bookselling, albeit briefly, before opening his furniture store.  By 1915 the Holswade family had sold the store to the Kresge Company.  This image shows the Holswade during the Ohio River flood of 1884.  Before the construction of the Flood Wall (following the 1937 Flood) Huntington was prone to major flooding, and 1884 was one of those occasions when the downtown area was inundated by flood waters.  For more information on the business career of Mr. William Henry Harrison Holswade, see Wallace, George: Huntington Through Seventy-Five Years (pp. 172-173.)
