Moore History

History of Moore

PR Simms

Several photos with Moore resident PR Simms.
1.  Simms was a barber and watch repairman, all in one, as is reflected in his storefront in the first photo
2.  Portrait of Simms
3.  An earlier storefront of Simm's business in early Moore
4.  Simms working on the harvest with a steam powered machine, sometime during the 19-teens.
5.  PR Simms with Henry Applegate (Moore's first mayor) standing in front of a brick building Simms engineered.  The downtown area of Moore burned down, prompting Simms to develop a brick making machine so the city could be built from fire resistant bricks rather than wood.  He built this building using the brick making machine.
