Re: The location of the mysterious Hamlin, Minnesota

That appears to be correct. Further research via the internet reveals that there is a Hamlin-Midway Neighborhood on St. Paul's South East side, near the major streets of Wabash and Kellogg, near the River. There is also a Hamlin (no e) Street in the vicinity. So the probability is that this ares was the location of the shops in question.
