Although a number of Shorpy photos display a sign proclaiming "sanitary" this or that, the proprietor of this shop would never be so bold.

That rats' nest of wires to the left of the door and the scorch marks above it lead me to believe that they should start looking for someone else to install their wiring.

Is that banjo music coming from the radio?

I'm always amazed at the items people can spot in the background of the Shorpy photos. With collecting/restoring antique TVs and radios being my hobby, it didn't take me long at all to spot the Sears Silvertone model 4567 radio up on the shelf. Radio reference picture credits go to which makes it fairly easy to identify common radios.

My first impulse upon seeing the picture was to look for the Prince Albert in a can. It didn't take long.
