    where is T.R. in this pic?

  5. epicharmus 115 months ago | reply

    This is likely in or around Perth Amboy, New Jersey. If you go to the LOC website, you can get a hi-res version of the pic that allows a closer look at some of the details otherwise invisible on Flickr. There's a poster on the left advertising "PERTH AMBOY'S BIG INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION". On the right, an umbrella with an advertisement for "J. SLOBODIEN & BRO." under a picture of a shoe; this 1966 New York Times obit for a Leo Slobodien describes "Slobodien Shoes" as "a retail chain in the Perth Amboy-New Brunswick area."

    Great work epicharmus on determining it was taken in Perth Amboy.

    Thank you, but I'm not content to rest on my laurels--I'd like to know where in Perth Amboy this was (or is)!

    Where is TR? Can he be seen?

  9. epicharmus 115 months ago | reply

    I think he must be inside the building.

  10. Harry Angstrom 114 months ago | reply

    Here is article on TR and the Bull Moose party. He helped split the Republican party and thus helped Wilson get elected President.

    4 cents for a "hot sausage" and 2 cents for a "pitcher lemonade" - wonder if those were cheap prices at the time?
