A window on the past: West Central Printing branches out into historic prints of the downtown Willmar area

They uncovered some vintage postcards depicting many of the grand brick buildings that graced the downtown business district. One thing led to another and Stephen Deleski's interest grew.

"We travel a lot, so when we're camping in summer we hit all the antique stores," he said.
