After several years the office was relocated to the Southwest corner of 19th and Warren. His brother Lloyd joined him following World War II and stayed in the office for about five years. Mr. Engstrom did the bookkeeping for several local businesses. He also prepared annual income tax returns for numerous Cheyenne residents, also for many former residents, who preferred to have him continue to prepare their returns even though they no longer lived in the area.
