----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) 28 Dec 1950

George Speich, who has been one of the foremost businessmen in the City of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.) for many years, has sold his Ford garage equipment and stock to Fred Barr Jr.

George started in business in 1923 as sub agent for the A.J. Braun Ford Sales of Loyal, and later became a partner, forming the Speich and Braun and formed a corporation which has been known since as the Speich Auto Sales Inc.

A new service addition was built in 1945, and the addition for the Ford tractor agency was erected in 1948.

Fred Barr Jr. took over the business, Tuesday, , Dec. 26. Present plans call for all hired help to remain with the new owner.

Fred Barr is no stranger to the people of the Greenwood vicinity. He has successfully operated a mink farm between Greenwood and Willard for some time.

We would like to wish George well in any future venture, and we would like to offer our best wishes to Fred.
