Moler's Food Market - East Potomac Street (Early 70's) Owned and operated by Junior Moler.
Going from right to left after Moler's at the time of photograph is the Twigg residence, the laundromat (originally the Whistle Stop restaurant; later Grace Baptist Church & School and now Enviro-Tech). Cage's Garage is across the street. Cage's was destroyed by fire in the 1980s and remains a vacant lot except for the apartments that were attached to the back of the building.
Tan building at far left was once owned by Herb Daugherty and was one of the locations of Frank Wenner's barbershops. We're not certain of what was there before that, but there were a number of businesses across from the Y, including Beatty's Meats in the 1920s and '30s, Foster's Weenie Joint in the '30s and '40s, Harrington's Shoe Shop and the pool hall (both in the old Werntz location) in the 1970s.
