I kept the photos very large in order to see all the detail in the store. The top photo is of Mr. Briggs and "Aunt Nettie." The bottom photo is Mr. Briggs and his watchmaker, Mr. Gregor. I used to sneak to the back of the store as a child and get Chicklets (gum) out of the drawers. The back room had all kinds of "goodies" that little boys would like . . . little gears, springs, broken watches, and Chicklets. These photos were taken in the late 50's.
