Did Your Appetizing Store Have Pickle Barrels ?

While driving my car this morning, I was surprised to hear on the radio that today is "National Pickle Day" and the start of "National Pickle Week". After reacting with a great laugh over that announcement, I immediately thought of the huge pickle barrels lined up in front of Moishe`s (Fenster`s) Appetizing Store on the southeast corner of Allerton Avenue and White Plains Road. Moishe`s pickle barrels, with all his "nickel pickles" inside them, became a true neighborhood icon during my growing up years of the 1940s and 50s.

Do you remember having an appetizing store with pickle barrels in your neighborhood? If so, were they outside or inside the store? If so, what was the name of the store and its Bronx location?
