This is Eagle Street and the old flat iron building. The building on the right which says Colonial Pizza was, in my day, Sam Hirsch's drug store. Time flies.

and, in my day, where the fountain is now located was Eddie Ashkar's store and Lopresto's hat shop.

It was Lopretta's Hat Shop & shoe shine - not LoPresto's.

WOW! What memories> I worked for Eddie Ashkar nights for quite a while. A real good man. Sam Hirsh was a great guy and helped many people. As I recal, it was the only drug store that had a license to disperse alcohol. Then Goldbergs Army Navy Store, Peoples Market, Taskins Furniture, Berkshire furniture,Giddleson Shoe store, Jollys Jewelry store,(1932) Saulniers Market (my father-in-law), Pops, Rices Drugstore. Across the street, Charlie Sam Laundry, Rohane Oil Co., Little Franks, Jacks Hot Dog Stand, upstairs Banker Cigar Co., Locksmith and so many other businesses just on that portion of Eagle St..
