This is another one of those fun “then and now” photos that make history come alive.  I love the old storefront for a new type of business in 1919, electric motor batteries.  It’s also interesting to see how the buildings across the street reflect in the windows.  The building is still there, but the storefront has changed quite a bit. — [GOOGLE MAPS]
