MAX SCHROEDER, florist and gardener, Piqua. Another of the enterprises of Piqua that deserves more than a passing notice is the floral and vegetable garden of Max Schroeder; it is located in the northeast part of the city, where he takes particular pride in raising and producing fine flowers, in which his experience here and at other places has enabled him to make a success; his garden affords a place of pleasure for many of the citizens of Piqua in leisure hours; Max was born close to Berlin, Germany, Aug. 6, 1855, where he grew to the age of 15 years when he, with his parents, immigrated to America, locating in Cincinnati; about 1874 he went to St. Louis, engaged in his present business, and remained until the opening of his garden in Piqua.
