YATES & CO. CLOTHING




“YATES & CO. CLOTHING”
Other signage appears beneath, painted over.

Apologies for the image quality – these are screen grabs from Google Maps Street View. This sign still stands, but new construction has taken place on the lot in front of the sign prior to my being able to shoot it, blocking it from view.

Located in the Ledger Building at 626 Chestnut Street, and selling clothes for children and boys, the store was at one time considered to be the “largest clothing house in America.”
