Film Clip: Charles Dorn's Standard Grocery and a Grand Avenue Scene c1933
Charles Dorn, a popular Irvington grocer, operated a Standard Grocery Store on the northwest corner of Brookville Road and Grand Avenue. In this very brief clip, c. 1933, patrons exit and enter the store. The final scene shows some employees standing along South Grand Avenue. Behind them, you can see houses on the eastern side of the street (400 block). I have included a shot of those dwellings in 2012. This historic film is courtesy of Larry Muncie.
