DENNIS BROS. COMPANY. In 1910 Dennis Bros. had been established over twenty-five years and was originally known as Watters & Dennis before its reorganization in 1900. In 1910 the company was the largest jobber and wholesaler of flour in Iowa.

The company did a general jobbing business of flour, feed, grain, hay, oil meal, molasses feeds and poultry feeds. The business was the agent for Prairie Queen, Occident, Pillsbury, Seal of Kansas, Jersey Cream and Hackney's H. & H. flours and specialized on its Big D flour which it manufactured for Dennis Bros.

The company owned two warehouses for storage of its flour. Between 4,000 to 5,000 barrels of flour were kept in stock at all times.

The 1903 Dubuque County Rural Route Directory listed 136-146 Main.

The 1909 Dubuque City Directory through 1948 Dubuque Classified Business Directory listed 106-120 Main as the address.
