This is the only picture we could find of Sani-Cream that was taken by G.D. Fronabarger. At the time, Missouri Pacific was repairing the railroad track in front of the business.
The Aug. 1, 1963 edition of the Southeast Missourian reported the sagging track would be raised to the level of the street and that the wavy pavement between the tracks would be removed and replaced. The worst conditions existed from Pacific west to the point between Hanover and Henderson where the tracks left Independence.
