On Shorpy:
Today’s Top 5

I've been there.

I'm a longtime Shorpy fan, but this may be the first time I've seen a photo, and known that I've stood on the spot.

Old Ambridge High School (demolished in 2008) also stood at the intersection of Fourth Street and Park Road.

Searching for the name Manojlovic in Ambridge, I stumbled upon this interesting want ad from the Pittsburgh Press, 1936: "German, Hungarian, Bohemian, Polish only need apply."

4th Street and Park Road

Manojlovic Candy and Cigars, according to Ambridge Memories.

Long gone, now just a parking lot.

Candy, cigars, and taxidermy, too

I note the stuffed squirrels in the window. Also, the proprietor may have been Janko Manojlovic (1881-1947), who is buried in Aliquippa:

Never heard of this drink.

Had to look,it up. Lot of details in this picture. Thanks!

Guy in the middle: "Are ya lookin' at me???!!"

I'll take a dozen

Candy cigars, that is.

Drink Tom Tucker

The smiling face on the soda sign at right is in great juxtaposition to the man at center with obvious anger issues. Tom Tucker was (and is) a unique mint-ginger ale that billed itself as a Southern drink, although it was made in Pittsburgh.

No longer there.

The store was at Fourth Street and Park Road.
