Raeder's Central Esso (Paul Raeder) operated at 1330 State St. in 1956. Raid's Central Esso (James F. Raid) was there in 1957. And Rapp's Central Esso (John Rapp) was there in 1959.
I also wrote about Reliable Furnishing, Masiroff & Company Furniture and Jr's Last Laugh, which each occupied the building at 1402 State Street from 1909 to the present. [Masiroff moved from 1527 State to 1402 State on August 14, 1925.] http://oldtimeerie.blogspot.com/2012/08/jrs-last-laugh-building-1909-reliable.html
The map above shows the owner of the property and the name of the business which occupied the building. For example, Charles Kline owned 1302 and 1304 State Street. Champion Auto Supply Company had a store at 1302 State, and Frederick's Credit Jewelers had a store at 1304 State St.
Turnpike Street no longer exists between State Street and the north side of West 14th St.; the block has resumed a triangular shape. There is still a small portion of Turnpike St. behind the building at 1402 State St. in Erie, Pennsylvania.
