Sarsaparilla, 1 p Per Glass

I’ve known about this photo of my Great-aunt Sarah – known to all as Cissy; her middle name was Cecila – for quite awhile. She’s the woman on the left, and was likely around 16 when the photo was taken, I’ve always been impressed by the massiveness of this Lancashire building were the family herbalist shop was housed. Big blocks. Chunky window frames. This photo was probably taken in 1906 shortly before it was closed. Soon thereafter her brothers immigrated to North Carolina; she, her sister and parents immigrated to Rochester, NY in 1906.
