 C’mon now, look closely at this one. Who does this remind you of and where was this photo taken? Do you know the circumstances of what was happening at the time?

 Did you know were last week’s Throwback Thursday was located? It was the interior of Jack Green's confectionary and cigar store at the north corner of Main and Pleasant Streets circa June 1946, most recently Hollydachs Pet Store. The building was razed a few years ago by Lyman Morse with plans to build a five story condominium, though plans for a hotel are now in the works.
