In these historic photos, provided by Robert Phelps, Jr, the grandson to Howard T. Chaille, you can see the shop in the early 1960s. Robert Phelps, Sr. proudly stands in front of the building. I especially enjoy the ad in the window. In the second photo, taken in 1956, Howard T. Chaille poses for a photo about seven years before his death. I have also included a lovely photo of Eva Mae Phelps, the wife of Robert Phelps, Sr and daughter of Howard T. Chaille. She was a teacher for many years.
