Throwback Thursday

After you identify where and what year this is, can you tell us what it ended up being afterwards? Anybody have any stories to go with this place?

Answer: It is Nation Wide market at the corner of Gould and Washington Streets. Nation Wide was a wholesale grocery distributor. Brad and Sue Drawbridge had it in the '70s.  The building set directly beside the road and the current Megunticook Market was built behind it after the pictured building was demolished.
