Looking Back — The Sport Shop

The Sport Shop, owned by Frank C. and J. R. Ladley, was a one-stop shop for “sporting goods, cigars, tobaccos, fancy wines & Cafe in connection.” With the small exception of a Puyallup Fair ad, every other placard in the window is selling tobacco. Once located at 408 8th Street in Hoquiam across from what is now the Bank of the Pacific, it eventually fell to Urban Renewal in the 1970s. But in August 1949 it was still “The Sportsman’s Home.” If you have any information on this photo or others from this feature, visit and submit it via the websites feedback form.
