W.A. Bartons Store in South Hills.
looked for this photo for years. Why? Because I had two other
photos showing just the left hand edge of the photo above. They
showed the gas pumps (see below) but little else. The W.A. Barton
store was the first one in South Hills. It started at
Bridge and Walnut in the early 20s, and by 1925 moved to the
location you see above, 1018 Bridge Road. Notice the great
little soap-box car on the right.|
This is one of the photos I had for years of the same location. The store would be to the right.
This is the second photo. In both, you see the first Charleston South Hills fire station in the background.
Here is a map showing the location of both the fire station and the store.
