An elegant, if eery bunch: from downtown Brooklyn & beyond, the 40's/50's world of neon & fancy fonts. All photos from the Gottscho-Schleisner Collection of the Library of Congress.
Miracle Mart, Flatbush Avenue (1951)
Field Brothers, King's Highway (1953)
Rockabye, Avenue J (1947)
Hunter, Avenue U (1946)
Adler's, Flatbush Avenue (1946)
I bought a shirt at Field Brothers on Kings Highway. It is where you went if you didn't want to buy at the lower-end Robert Hall ( my sizes were in the HUSKY section) but didn't want to be foolish and overspend at a fancy store.
Thank you - what a nice story!
