    The Durham Deliverance Center? Did they make you squeal like a pig to get in, or just put lipstick on a pig?

    Thank you Durham, I'm here all week.

414-416 East Pettigrew appears to have been built by ~1920, and remodeled by the late 1920s. 414 initially housed the Liberty Bakery, and 416 the Self-Serve Grocery. By the late 1920s, the Liberty Cafe had been replaced by Red Bird Ice Cream. In the 1930s, the 414 housed Midway Lunch, and 416 housed John Trohatos' restaurant.
By the 1940s, 414 housed Wilson's Sport Shop (a pool hall) and 416 the Wonderland Barber Shop and Beauty Shop.

By 1972, 414 housed the "Durham Deliverance Center" while the Wonderland Barber and Beauty shop persisted. By the mid-1970s, the building appears to have been torn down.
After becoming an overgrown, wooded parcel for ~15 years, this parcel became a gravel parking lot for Rick Hendrick Chevrolet in the late 1990s.
