Spring is in the air, which means many of us are sneezing from seasonal allergies!  While grabbing for a tissue to dry those itchy, watery eyes, take a moment to enjoy this window display from 1938.  The Kassis store specialized in women’s and children’s apparel, and was located at 202 S. Second Street in downtown Laramie.
