Can’t Tell A Store By Its Cover

Rockaway Ol`times

These days, people might pick up something to read while waiting at the European Beauty Salon at 115-06 Rockaway Beach Boulevard. In the 1930s, people would go there just to read.  The building was the home of the Rockaway Park branch of the Queens Library. The library later moved to Beach 116th Street and today is located on the corner of Beach 117th and RBB and is called the Seaside branch.  (Thanks to James Supple for the great shots.  See OldRockawayPhotos.com for more).
