A photo from
about the same time, taken on the other side of the street, up the block
a bit. Looks like the Fourth of July or some other flag-waving occasion.
On the right would later appear such businesses as Kohl's Treasure Chest
gift shop, One-Hour Martinizing and, on the corner, the Rexall drug store,
although at this time it was named Whelan's. Over on the south
side of the street we see the buildings that would house the Wonder Bar
and Ratner's Confectionery, and down on the corner of Myrtle Avenue the
big handsome building with the cupola that would much later play host to
Moy Bing's (after it moved out of the second floor of Whelan's).
Still farther down we see the spire of St. Rose of Lima School.
