Once upon a time

Tip toe through the greenhouse - Sandy Williams in her book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," shows this photo of Fred Morris. "Englishman Fred Morris established Morris Florists in 1894. Shown about 1907 in the greenhouse near his home at Hickory and Grant Streets, Morris produced shrubs, vegetables, and herbs as well as flowers. When the government encouraged victory gardens during the war, Morris volunteered to teach residents proper planting methods."
