I easily recognize the building in the added photo and I remember waiting for taxis there many times. In the early 60s it was an employment agency owned by Bernice Nelson. She and her husband, a chiropractor I believe, built and lived in a house (where he also had his practice)on Rand Street for a long time.

Thank you!!!! :) I've heard that the man who ran the taxi operation was named Ittel.

Yes, it was owned by Henry Ittel who was known as "Porky". I've been told he lived above Bates bar on Main St. and Bates left it in his will that if he died before Porky, Porky could continue to live there rent free until he died which is apparently what happened.
