A June 1950 image of Peoples Furniture Store at 514 E. Broad St., where the summer furniture sale included a chaise lounge with mattress for $18.95. From 1896 to 1915, this address housed the Robert E. Lee Camp No. 1 Confederate Veterans Hall. The camp held meetings and parties at this location, while its home for veterans was atĀ Boulevard and Grove Avenue.

By request, I located this photo of the old Peoples Furniture store. Do you remember it? Did you ever visit before it closed?
