What memories. Sharlin Electric was a mainstay in this even when I made my first Communion at Sadred Heart church across the street in 1941. I think Chippy Ross the lawyers' family took over the spot when Sharlin moved "uptown". Fred ran his father's speedometer shop in Conover's Alley behind this row of stores after he came home from WWII. It was a necessary stop prior to selling your car in those days.

Chippy Ross the lawyer was my father. Family did not take over the Sharlin's store although the families were friendly. My grandmother had a grocery store in the 500 block of So. Warren.
