Cityscapes – Part 7

JENNESTAD’S CLOTHING WAS OPENED IN 1908 by Ole and Hannah Jennestad at 317 First Avenue in Sandpoint; directly across the street from where the Panida Theater resides.  Because of the reputation of Ole, this was a very popular place for men to have their clothing fitted.   Jennestad’s also once fitted Commodore Frank Harrison Kelley, the Base Commander at Farragut Naval Station for uniforms and was responsible for outfitting approximately 750 prisoners of war located at the station with boots and socks. The business was taken over by Ole and Hannah’s daughter Edith Jennestad until she retired.
