Featured Photo: Wayne Businesses, ca. 1947

2008.003.002What might be most interesting about this photograph of downtown Wayne as it appeared more than 70 years ago is how little has changed. The Anthony Wayne Theatre, former Wayne Opera House, and spires of the Wayne Presbyterian Church still define Wayne's skyline. The main difference is the store on the corner, a 3-story former house that was a popular candy store at the time of this photograph and would stand for less than ten years after.
