Black and white photograph of John Street from Elizabeth Street. The Robert Gibbes House (4 John Street) is identified with the commercial building attachment addressed at 2 John. Two men are seen standing in front of the commercial building that was once a grocery store run by John Hollings but seems to be vacant at the time the photograph was taken. Advertisements for Atlantic Pale Beer and 7Up soda are visible painted on the front and side of the building. A woman waits to cross the street as a man wearing a hard hat stands in the middle seemingly waiting for a truck to fix the street light above him.
