Fire on Fairmount Ave (1940)

BEAUTY SHOP DAMAGED BY FIRE – Flames can be seen above shooting out of the windows and rear door of a Negro beauty shop, at Twenty-fourth Street and Fairmount Avenue, which was damaged considerably by fire yesterday afternoon. The picture was taken just after firemen arrived and were preparing to play water on the blaze. The origin of the fire is not known. It was brought under control in a short time.
