1940's: SOUTH BROAD AT GOLDBERG'S
Hey, who knows? Were we to see across the street to the sidewalk in front of Goldberg's Department Store, one might see a young Tommy Glover walking with his mom to Goldberg's. Little Tommy was interested in the great "Toyland" at Goldberg's while mom was heading to the "Notions" counter for a stock of khaki wool for a sweater she was knitting for her eldest son Len who was over in England with the 8th Air Force. If I'm not mistaken that New Jersey Floor Covering sign was located on the site of the destructive fire that leveled their facility circa 1946 or 7.
