(71) 318 – 328 Main Street

318-328 Main"The next two-story building was razed when Albert Verplank built a one-story four-room store building. In the old building were various early Hobart businesses — a furniture store, undertaking establishment, shoe store, etc. The new building housed a menswear shop, dress shop, first offices of the Hobart Federal Savings and Loan, electric and gift shop, beauty parlor and dress shop, Guzzo's fruit and vegetable store, Johnson's Grocery, and now the Hi-Style Beauty Salon (328 Main St.), children's wear store, health food shop and wig shop."

Images (links open in a new window):
♦ This 1964 street scene gives us an oblique view of part of the present building's façade — too oblique to see what's actually in there.
♦ Among the building's occupants in July 1968 was a shop called Little Pleasures.
♦ La Mode, at 326 Main, sold women's clothing in 1971.
