Notes Interior view of Luft's Print Shop at 701 Algoma Boulevard in Oshkosh. An unidentified man is standing in front of a magazine rack wearing an old fashioned woman's dress and bonnet. He may be dressed for Halloween, since he also wears a mask on his forehead. Alvin P. Luft ran a small print shop in this building and also sold magazines, soft drinks, candy, office supplies and photo processing. The building was torn down in 1967 or 1968 when the University of Oshkosh expanded.
