Health Spot shoes is another in a long list of buildings in Downtown Erie that no longer exist. The store was located at 108 West 9th St. in Erie, PA. It was directly across the street from Orra-Jean Beauty Academy in 1952.
The house in the center of the photo, at 110 West 9th Street, was the office of podiatrist John N. Petrus. The Petrus family lived on the first floor in the west half of the home and Dr. Petrus had an office in the east half of the building. There were apartments upstairs, and one was occupied by Mrs. Wood, a seamstress.
The three buildings shown in this photo have been demolished. There is now a three story building on the right (east) side and a parking garage on the left (west) side.
The ladies shown in the photo above include Helen Kratzke, Ann Logan, Jean, Grace Sawdy and Lana Pace. This shot was taken in June of 1952.
