A dog sits in front of W.M. Dinkel Mercantile (The Black Nugget today) sometime around the end of WWI. The second flag from the top has a star for every local that served in the war. The lower flags are Liberty Loan Flags, awarded when a business or municipality surpassed its quota for selling bonds to finance the war.
