     "Store of Quality" Now Owns Build-
           ing in Which it Has Been Lo-
             cated Past Three Years.


      Its Display Windows are Large and
         Well Designed and Permit Lav-
                 ish Display of Goods

      George F. Murphy has bought the store building in which his "Store of Quality" has been located for the past three years. The property was purchased from Mrs. Elizabeth Parker.
      The building measures 60 feet frontage by 80 feet in length, and is two stories in height. The main floor is occupied by the "Store of Quality." Mr. and Mrs. Murphy will make their home on the second floor where the seven rooms will be finished to suit their requirements.
      The Parker Block is a new structure, having been built about five years ago by White Brothers. Its white enameled pressed brick front is of a distinctive design and stamps the building as one of the handsomest in the city. The display windows are of adequate size and enable Mr. Murphy to show many of the new styles of the season and to display their pretty goods for which the store is noted, always having something new. (Brainerd Dispatch, 06 March 1914, p. 3, c. 3)

      George F. Murphy's beautiful store was opened to the public in 1910 and by the joint efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Murphy has become a big, flourishing business.
      They carry a full line of fine dry goods, ladies' ready-to-wear and shoes. "Quality, style and service."
      Mr. and Mrs. Murphy were born and educated in Brainerd and well merit the confidence and trade of their many friends. (Brainerd's Half Century, Ingolf Dillan, General Printing Company, Minneapolis, Minnesota: 1923; p. 111)
