Five storefronts in Pennsylvania.  1) Yocco's, originally established in 1922 at its former center city Allentown location. From the 1970s to the 2000s, five new Yocco's restaurants were opened. Yocco's is currently run by Gary Iacocca, the third generation owner.   2) Sign shop, McKeesport, PA, established 1948 (permanently closed) 3) Linda’s, near McKeesport, PA (information needed)
4) Manns Drug Store, White Oak, Pennsylvania (permanently closed). Four generations of the Manns family worked at Manns Drug Store, which was opened in 1926 by Walter Manns Sr., and his brother. Manns Drug Store was re-built in 1964, when Dave Manns was 14 years old.
“It was so ultra-modern when we built it 55 years ago. The diamonds that have our name in them --- that was revolutionary.  I remember the day my dad got them. We waited until it got dark and went up on the hill and turned around to look at the new sign for the first time - we were just so thrilled and excited to see it.” 5) Gilbert’s Shoes, Philadelphia, PA. Now a collectively-run, not-for-profit, community center.

1) I revisited the Palmer Diner last night, as seen in my first book, American Squares. Not much has changed. Speaking of...
Hello followers! Hello @staff! I wonder if anyone is out there? If so, hello. I believe my Instagram may have “broken up with me” so I thought I would revisit the world here. Nice to see you.
2) Memorial Day, Pottsville, Pennsylvania
3) 1959 Edsel Ranger outside Port Carbon, Pennsylvania. Shot with the Rolleiflex on expired #agfaoptima100
