125 Orange St. was a small commercial establishment just to the north of Markham Jones "retail grocers". By mid-century, it has become the "Duke Sport Shop." Think this was before Duke cracked down on their trademark?

Looking northwest, 1963.

Sometime in the late 1960s-early 1970s, the first floor of this building was 'colonialized' with shutters, a pedimented doorway - etc. -

Early 1970s.

but the second floor is intact.
