The building in back with all the flagpoles is Hahne's. The featured Loft's corner was at Broad and West Park. It is now Prudential Drive. Schrafft's and Hearn's/Klein's would be in the foreground (not seen). Google 677 Broad Street and you'll see the "new" picture.

Picture above is the Northwest corner of 677 Broad St, Newark, N.J. corner of W. Park, Pl. Different building there now.

Memories

This was about 17 years before I was born (1947). I lived in Newark until I was 27 and may have passed this candy store/soda fountain many times. I wish I could see what the intersection was, so I could place it more accurately. It may be the one at Broad and Market Streets. That would put it in the center of downtown Newark.

Rare shades of human hair a specialty!

This is a very interesting photo, for the hair shop alone. Those are pretty classy cabs! I wonder what it cost to ride in the back one?
