SMU Paper Pays Homage to Honest Joe's. I Have a Picture of the Store Across the Street.

Many thanks to the Friend of Unfair Park who directed my attention to the Daily Mustang piece about the long-gone Honest Joe's Pawn Shop in Deep Ellum -- must have been something familiar about the "Herschel Wilonsky" briefly quoted therein that caught this particular Friend's attention. Figured I might as well use the opportunity to show off my family's old auto parts store, which sat almost directly across from Honest Joe's at 2515 Elm Street from 1932 to 1955. I run everyone else's old pictures of Dallas on Unfair Park; might as well show you mine.
