BGE-28385B – Wonder Clothes, Eastern Avenue and Conkling Street, 1954.

Like Howard Street to the west, Eastern Avenue was a major commercial and industrial thoroughfare for the Highlandtown neighborhood in East Baltimore. Using the city’s electric streetcar lines, shoppers could easily access Epstein’s discount department store as well as dozens of other local retail establishments that lined the avenue on its way to the county.
