I agree, about the ceilings and flared pillars; I just don't remember Bam's having stands like this. Wherever we are, those doors in the distance with the streaming sunlight indicate a ground floor level. And I think McCrory's had ceiling fans, or was that Woolworth's? There's a glass lighting fixture, hanging from the ceiling near those doors. Does that ring a bell for anybody?
Marty... think about the rows of stores across Broad St. part of the Public Service building... looks like a full produce store... remember a small cheese shop in the complex... additionally, looks like south facing lighting in the windows... stumped... John, any idea what year this pic was taken, it's origins??? you put it up...
I remember at Broad/Market Streets opposite corner of the Kinney Building on Market was a store where we could get orange something or other's - think it was an Orange Julious?? It was 25 cents and I would opt to buy one and walk home to Roseville rather than take the 34 Market bus. Was this the front before that...was it called...Nedicks??
I remember the old market area on mulberry street.You had fish stores, produce and meat&poultry stores that usually had sawdust on the floor.This place looks to neat and clean to be there. I don't think it is Penn Station either. The windows in the right hand of the picture don't seem to match.
