Antonio Macaluso is mentioned in an April 29, 1922, Geneva Free Press story about improvements at the lake.
Information about the whereabouts of his business was not given, but the article states that Macaluso had successfully run a store the prior year and for 1922 he planned to divide the story and a grocery and meat market on one side and lunch counter/soda fountain in the second side. Wenger & Congdon of Painesville planned to run the former.
He also was drilling a gas well on the east side of the store building. At 400 feet, there was still no gas, but Macaluso planned to have Fred Inman go 1,000 feet if necessary to hit a pocket.
His best prospects seemed to be coming from Cleveland, where he had an “active business” selling his new heel plate to shoe buyers. The plates cost 50 cents each and he’d sold 500,000 of them. Macaluso’s heel plates were a patented invention.
