My husband remembers Baker's Market and the Toggery. He believes the butcher shop was in the Market. He knows Mr. Baker and sees him monthly. We will ask him in December. Candace :-)

John Mongolo was my cousin and he actually ran for Mayor of Sparks. We found an old newspaper article that mentioned the name of the butcher shop - I think John owned it for 3 years then sold it. I think it was the Palace Market, but I need to look at my notes again. Please ask Mr. Baker however, as it would be wonderful to include his comments in our family history. Thanks so much.

I ran the name John Mongolo thru the newspaper section of Ancestry.com. Had lots of hits.
The shop was called Palace Meat Market.
1935 newspaper ran a nice ad on May 31st with the address of 1018 B St. Sparks.

Reno Gazette 1933 December 26 page 4. Eileen Winslow and John Mongolo were married Christmas day. He owns the Palace Meat Market.

Hope that helps a bit. If you have a Family History Center in your town, go there as they usually have Ancestry.com on their computers for free. You can view and print out the articles you want.

Thanks - John was an interesting fellow indeed. I belong to Newspaper Archives and have located many articles on him - finally found the name of the market. His son lives in Las Vegas and couldn't remember the name.
