Ed Rice, one-time Bluffton business owner, posed for this photo taken by Paul Diller sometime in the late 1940s or early 1950s. Rice's Tot Shop, was owned by Ed and his wife, Ethlyne.

The Rice family later sold the shop to a the Reichenbachs-Steiners-Lehmans, and the shop became Reistman's. Later the shop was sold to Paul and Jan Snyder, who operated it as Jan's. Today the Bluffton News is located in the former Rice Tot Shop.
