"Not sure of the exact date but it is my wife's dad in knickers pictured at his job. This may be a Sanitary store in Richmond's Fan. Items on the rack next to him are marked Virginia. (There's a ton of detail in the original size picture.)Make sure you check out the high resolution image, there's some amazing detail in this photo!
My wife can't remember where the store may have been. She remembers her dad telling her it was near Monroe Park. It may have been the old Style building at 1301 Main Street (which I worked in) or somewhere on the 1400 block of Main.
It was "Sanitary Grocery" because everything was out of customers reach and a clerk would retrieve your goods. A very hygienic clerk I guess :-)."
