South Slope News had a piece last week about old signage revealed on 9th Street.  This was at no. 334, and the sign, Henrietta's, was for a bridal store around since at least the early fifties.  There was  a really nice response to the post: a couple of Henrietta's customers - brides from the seventies - sent in pictures of themselves in their wedding gowns.
As I'm often on this block, I had to take a picture of the sign myself.  I remembered coming across Henrietta's among the 1980s tax photos, and sure enough, they were there in my photo files.  The store took up both 334 and 336 9th, and the sign was a classic:
