SENIOR LEGAL ADVICE CLINIC IN GRAYS HARBOR AND PACIFIC COUNTY: Senior Legal Advice Clinics are now available in the Olympic Area Agency on Aging Information &Assistance offices in Aberdeen, Raymond and Long Beach. This is a free service to elders 60-plus who want/need to meet with an attorney face-to-face for some guidance. Seniors may also send a representative for themselves if they are unable to meet with the attorney. The sessions are generally 30 minutes and can cover a variety of topics ranging from wills, Powers of Attorney, tenant rights, estate questions and so on. The attorney will be in the Aberdeen office Tuesday, Oct. 28. And it’s easy access; just contact our offices, Aberdeen (360) 532-0520/Raymond (360) 942-2177/Long Beach (360) 642-3634 and request an appointment.

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 www.jonesphotocollection.com and submit it via the websites feedback form.

Looking Back — Heron and H streets

Aberdeen’s East Heron and H streets in 1934. This block looks very different today. Most of the buildings are gone as are the trolley tracks running down Heron Street. It was said that when the Chehalis Bridge was opened in 1956 the noise from the traffic made the Finch Building difficult to work in and it eventually emptied. It languished for years and despite some efforts to save it, it was finally torn down in 1999. Jay’s Farm Stand has recently relocated to part of the space.
