Natrona Transfer & Storage Company

Natrona Storage & Moving Company was a moving and storage company that dated back many decades. Their substantial building was built just off of the Burlington Northern Railroad, which made for easy shipping in the days when the company relied upon horse drawn wagons to move freight.

This building was in use up until quite recently, although it apparently no longer is being used. In recent years, as the "Allied" sign indicates, the company engaged in interstate moving, as well as local moving and storage.
This photograph was added those above were posted. This photos shows the railroad sidetrack that once served this building.

The painted signs on this building are, in fact, no longer there. Since the original photographs were taken, the building was substantially overhauled and no remnant of the original signs now exists.

Ayres Jewelry

This building is painted with the name of Ayres jewelry. It is perhaps an unusual example, in that Ayres, a very long lasting Casper business, is still in business and is still located at this location, although it has also expanded into a neighboring building. Ayres also has an old fashion sidewalk clock out in front of the building, although it is not visible in the photographs.

In some ways, this photo demonstrates how a well run business is timeless. The business has been in business, in this location, for decades.
