Description

This black and white image shows the storefront of Palmer Blair's photo shop before it was moved to its location on Depot Street. The stone building is nestled into the hillside, with Blair's shop taking up the bottom floor of the building and Jo's Beauty Shoppe taking up the top floor of the building. A paper sign in the left front window of Palmer's shop reads "Moving Soon to New Location on Depot Street" in scrawling print. A paper sign in the right window of Palmer's shop reads "3 cameras," "15 sets of prints," and "Free door prizes to children." Framed photographs sit in the left windowsill, while Blair's equipment sits in the right windowsill. A handwritten, illegible letter is posted on the door. On the back of the image is a hand written note reading "Palmer's second shop, King St, rock building-Linney House, 3 copies."
