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. 544 East Pettigrew is the two-story structure to the right of Cozart Street.

544 East Pettigrew St., located on the southwest corner of East Pettigrew St. and Cozart Alley/Street was built in the 1930s and housed Levy's Grocery until ~1957. By 1959, it housed Steele Beauty Salon, which had become Thorpe's Barber Shop by 1961.
