Hi everyone, here is a neat local history item of note!
I had a patron inquire today, where the old Wing and Bostwick Store was located.
So I went to my trusty Dimitroff-Janes book,* and looked up info on the store!
The author’s state: “Wing and Bostwick on the Northside was one of the largest retail stores in the city, selling a variety of goods.”
So the store was a big deal in its day!
The store was housed in a fine old three story building on the corner of Bridge and Pulteney Streets, across from what is today the Bridge Street Laundry Store.
Here is the photo:
What a great old building!
Have a great day!
