Spangler and Rich, Dealers in Dry Goods, Marietta, Pennsylvania

Spangler and Rich, Dealers in Dry Goods, Marietta, Pennsylvania
A nineteenth-century advertising card for Spangler & Rich, a store in Marietta, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Amazingly enough, the building that housed the store is still standing, and its façade hasn't changed dramatically in over 100 years. A laundromat occupies the building today.

See a side-by-side comparison of the image on the card and a recent Google Street View (from 2011) of the building .
