It’s April 25, which means big savings at the Brooklyn neighborhood Abraham and Straus! Today’s Brooklyn Eagle—uh, in 1902, that is—showcases an advert reminding locals that A&S at 422 Fulton Street features the “broadest aisles, perfect ventilation and prompt service from willing people. And A&S prices are the smallest anywhere.” For example, you can pick up a “combination Grand Gramophone for large & small records with recorder, reproducer, case and 14-inch horn,” on sale for $35.
Meanwhile, on this Open Thread Wednesday, blow your own horn and share what’s on your mind with your BHB compatriots. (Kitty Photo: Chuck Taylor: Willow Place @ State Street)
