Historic Storefronts, Edison

Hartford Street [The building on the right is the Hammack-Rish Bank, built in 1902].

Though it’s quite small, Edison has retained much of its early-20th-century commercial architecture.

Lane Drugs, Edison

Lane Drugs has been in business for decades and they even sell lunch. I believe this was originally the Farmers Trading Company, built in 1912.

Edison Theater, 1951

Lamar Sanders writes: I went to its opening in the 1950s. It was an Esther Williams swimming movie, and it was packed and had chairs in the aisles. The theater across the street charged 11 cents, and this one, built by Bill Israel, went up to 15 cents. Then you needed a nickel for a piece of candy and another nickel for a coke.
