Random car

Anybody notice the automobile in the photo?

270 Main Street

Paterson, NJ. Google Street View it, if you dare. Now it is known as BARGAIN/Today's Fashion for Men. Safe to say the interior has probably changed.

Ahead of its Time

This place definitely reminds me of Richman Brothers as late as the 70s or 80s.

Modern in the day

Love the raised display cabinets (almost to the ceiling) on the right, complete with glass fronts. It actually reminds me more of my perceived image of 1957 instead of 1947. You can tell this was the height of modern post-war shopping elegance, even in Paterson.

So I guess Kartch's was just ahead of its time.

William Carlos Williams

Probably didn't shop here.

Jane Jetson

Shopped here.
