Looking south towards the block of East Pettigrew between Henry Alley (intersecting street on the right) and Cozart St. (intersecting street next to Speight's service station, on the left) - ~1940s.

534-536 East Pettigrew appears to have been built in ~1940. 536 initially housed Green Inn Fruit and Produce, followed by McNeill Produce in 1947. By 1950, Pettiford Grocery had opened in 534, and the Royal Sport Shop in 536. 536 became McClain's Seafood and Poultry Market by 1954, which closed by 1961. It remained vacant from that point forward.
