'Lincoln window' tradition continues
CRYSTAL LAKE – The Flag Store in Crystal Lake is continuing the tradition of the "Lincoln window."
It started when Raue Hardware occupied the space at 69 N. Williams St. Every February Lucile Raue would hang a picture of Abraham Lincoln in the front window. It caught the eye of Dave Warren of Crystal Lake, a craftsman and Lincoln scholar, whose license plate was OLD ABE 1.
"I went in and asked her if she'd like some other stuff," Warren said. "So we'd fill up the window each year."
