A small shoe repair shop, at 47-1/2 Water St., that sat directly next door to what is now Scotty’s Pizza. The store’s awning can be seen at right.

To the left of the shoe repair shop is this store front, located at 47-A Water St., which this author does not remember its function.

A single family home, at 53 Water St., to the left of the unknown store front.
