In the present Mystery Photo 155, a small neighborhood department store is clearly seen and, hopefully, will be recognized and discussed by someone who grew up in its neighborhood. Although I could not recall both the store and its location, I was inspired to think of the ONLY small department store that was a mainstay for many years in my childhood neighborhood of Allerton Avenue and White Plains Road...Joe Tuckman`s Department Store! This was during the 1940s and early 50s.
Did your neighborhood have a small department store, even though there were more famous larger ones such as "Hearn`s" or "Alexander`s" which may have been within walking distance to your home? Did any of you ever shop at Joe Tuckman`s on Allerton Avenue?
