I haven't written about Charles Long (aka Carl H. Lange) and his business in a while (here is my previous post). Ray, Nori, and Max visited Springfield some time ago and took this picture of the building that his store was in. The address is 215 S. 5th Street. According to Public Records, they have been in business for 63 years (at this location). I think it is still owned by the same family. I am not sure what happened to Charles' store after 1898 as that is the last city directory I have.

Here is a view of the store with Charles out front.
