State Street, Boston Store circa 1932 Erie, PA
The red building across the street from Baker's to the south was later torn down for the new (now old) Erie Sport Store.
The trolley tracks down the middle of State Street were either torn out or paved over around 1935-36.
The old Elk's Club on the corner on the right side of the picture was torn down to make way for the new Erie City Hall, as were all the other buildings between South Park Row and West 7th Street on State.
