Oh Yes, We Remember It Well


Judging by the clothing, we believe that these two photographs were taken around the turn of the century in the late 1890’s or early 1900’s. We know that they were taken in Rockaway, probably somewhere in the Arverne area. This photograph is obviously taken in a grocery store. Look at the price of a soda over the man on the left. Large sodas were only nine cents. Can anybody tell us where and when this photograph was taken?Judging by the clothing, we believe that these two photographs were taken around the turn of the century in the late 1890’s or early 1900’s.
