Lee Street 1928
( This was actually called State Street at the time )
See larger photo HERE
|Wonderful rare, never
before published photo of Lee & Summers Street. There is a
Cafe on the corner, and then a Barber Shop. But the real treat is
the Kroger store. I'm beginning to believe that there was a
Kroger about every 5 blocks in the 20s & 30s. To the right of
Kroger is M. Kornstein Tailor. He was in business for many years.
To the right of him is Farleys clothing store. That
building is still there today. ( see the photo at the bottom )
reason for the above photo is the Billboard by Carey Sign Company.
On close inspection, it appears that it suffered a bad hail
storm, and so the sign was documented.
In Dec of 1956, the building caught fire and was destroyed
The Curtain Shop was also destroyed.
