GEORGE W. WUNDERLICH. Around 1884, George W. WUNDERLICH opened his drug store at 2181-2183 Couler Avenue. It was listed there in the 1886-87 through 1890-91 Dubuque City Directory.

He sold the location to JOHN BECKER in 1894 and moved his business to 103 Main around 1895. The store was later listed in commercial directories at 955 Main. He remained in this location until he sold it to Junkerman & Ries in 1907.
