Found on EBay – Pin Ton Company


A postcard showing the Pin Ton Company Confectionary, 427 S. Broadway, has been listed on EBay. I don’t recall ever hearing of this business or seeing this interior. The store flourished around 1915. Bidding on the postcard starts at $9.99.

Feb. 5, 1915, Pin-Ton

    Looks like the building is still standing, then, based on that link (thanks!). I had no idea those buildings went so far back — might have to pretend to be shopping for a quinceanera dress sometime and try to scope it out 😉
