This building's rustic woodwork, hand-carved in Germany's Black Forest, was part of he German exhibit at the St. Louis 1904 World's Fair. In 1905 the building was purchased and moved to Alton, to become a photography studio, then the Alton School of Dance and now this wonderful old fashion Candy Store and Gift Shop.
