Church Hill Shoe Service

The small commercial building at 2211 East Marshall Street has recently had some of its late-20th century skinning removed to revealed a circa 1940s painted sign for $.05 Cokes and the Church Hill Shoe Service. Curious, I had to go dig through the Hill Directories to find out more about this…
