Blakley Brothers Floor and Sanding Shop

Exterior view of a business owned by the Blakley Brothers located at 1102 Oak Street/1032 Bristol Highway near the intersection of Oak, East Center/Bristol Highway, and Myrtle streets. The Brothers provided the service of floor sanding, finishing, and waxing. Tools of the trade are displayed outside the shop. The store was owned by Omer J. and Simon B. Blakley. The address visible on the building reads 1102 Oak Street, but the city directory of 1949 lists the business as being located just around the corner at 1032 Bristol Highway (East Center Street).
