    Looks like it's at latitude 42.085962N, longitude 71.023417W

    eg maps.google.com/maps?f=l&hl=en&geocode=&time=...

    judging by the satellite photo, that building is still there.
  • #4 (Meaghan) 7y

    It is still there. However the Building that photo was taken from is no longer there. It is a parking lot.

    Still a store in that spot too.
  • Dmitry Papkovich 7y

    Great things you do, i mean all the project. Keep it on!
  • rrsafety 7y

    Check it out in MSN live maps Warren Ave and Pleasant.

    Enter "warren avenue and pleasent st, brockton, ma" into the MSN live maps, go to the birdseye view and you can see a nice shot of the building. It is the one on the right...
  • Patrick 7y

    Thanks for the map info mfmcdougall and rrsafety, that was fun actually seeing that building as it is today.
  • AntyDiluvian 7y

    I remember that little market on the corner of North Warren Avenue and Pleasant Street in Brockton. But more important -- to me -- is the building from which the shot was taken. As #4 (Meaghan) says, it's no longer there. But it was there after WWII, when my late stepfather came back from the South Pacific. It was a rooming house and he rented there.
  • AntyDiluvian 7y

    Just a comment: the "7264" people see on the market's door is not its address. This is right at the start of North Warren Avenue, so it's number would be something like "10."

    That "7264" -- actually, I think it's "7254" -- is an ad. I vaguely recall it as a brand of cigar, though I can't find anything on the Internet to confirm it.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called The Original Plymouth Colony, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

    7-20-4 was the name of the cigars
    my grandfather, too, had a room in the building across the street
  • AntyDiluvian 7y

    Thanks, Bill. 7-20-4 it is. See it clearly in the third image down on this page from Aubrey's Antiques.
  • Katherine Pearce 7y

    i cannot seem to get this image of my head
  • MeganAndHerDocMartens 6y

    Grew up about a mile down that road.
    I love Brockton.

    As it exists today, from street view: maps.google.com/maps?f=l&hl=en&geocode=&time=...
  • David H D 6y

    There are some homies on the street view.
