Across the street were Keevil the Hatter (William H. Keevil) who advertised his merchandise by hoisting a gigantic beaver atop his roof. Hatters did an immense and elegant trade in the st.

Next door to Keevil's, at the extreme left, was Charles E Mussey's Billard Parlor, one of the three listed in the 1878 directory. The Globe-Democrat Building is still standing (occupied by Mutual Insurors) but the busy click-clack of Mussey's Billard Parlor and the noisy merchandising at Keevil's has given way to the calm... of the Mississippi Valley Trust Company.
