Whereabouts

This one's location is a bit of a puzzler. About the only semi-legible clue is the white sign in the second-story window, which seems to say "[ILLEGIBLE] BEAUTY SHOP."

I took a quick run through the 1922 city directory & saw no entries seeming to correspond to the lettering in the first word. Perhaps some other sleuth, aided by the fact that this is a corner building next to a streetcar line, can improve on my efforts.

Truck ID

Packard.
