Early Photograph of Grocery Store

Sadly unidentified as to locale, time frame and people, but interesting for showing the range of products available.  Possibly Maine.

I looked for clues in the various signs and packages.  Since Frigidaire started mass production of refrigerators in the 1920s, it's possible the photograph dates to that era.   The calendar might hold a clue as to locale, but I can't make it out.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Just happened upon this, and thought I'd mention that the Mickey Mouse "Signs / Sho-Cards" sign would date it to at least 1928.

  2. Thanks, Adam! I appreciate your taking the time to help in dating this photograph.
