Harris Grocery Store (Supermarket?)
Allen Pope tells us, "......the old original Harris grocery. I believe it was located on Cleveland Ave. between Main St. And East Point St.  It is the same Harris family [as the owners of the Harris grocery at Cleveland and Sylvan].  Clifford Harris was married to my Dads baby sister." photo submitted by Allen Pope


The above two photos submitted by Alton Gloer.  He thinks they were taken around 1955 or 56.  .Anyone know what the occasion might have been?
