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.

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.
