(That seems to be an odd combo. However, in the day furniture makers were also good at making coffins.)
In rain or Shine - Just as fine.

This is an old advertisement on the side of the Poston Building. The Poston Building is the oldest in downtown Clarksville, dating back to 1845, and is on the old town square. This advertisement was painted in the 1870's and was designed to be seen by riverboat traffic from those going down the Cumberland River.
