Michael H. Beard

Michael H. Beard played a pivotal role in securing funds and public interest in the historic Loyless Interurban Drugstore as a City Councilman and, later, citizen advocate. These are his pictures, graciously given to Robert Griffith in April 2008.

Before the Renovation

The windows and entry, bricked over when the Burleson Dispatcher occupied the building, are cleared out.
The roof and interior walls, including a drop ceiling and partitions added by the Deerings, are also removed.

A large hole at the rear of the building, cut in order to install large printing equipment in 1935, is repaired.

Holes in the side of the building placed to accomodate window air conditioning units, are also sealed, while the
original window openings are carefully revealed and repaired.
