Well this was an unexpected arrival in Acme Style's inbox... pictures of one of the greatest and most classic Acmes still in existence . I have been hoping to get back here myself to put together a more extensive post than was originally done on the Clayton store back in Acme Style's early days. While those plans are still in the works, in the meantime we're being treated to spectacular photos that John took just this week. He posted on his flickr photostream and kindly allowed me to post them here as well. Please check out John's collections by clicking here for fascinating pictures and ads from such classic chains as Two Guys, Nichols, Kmart, Clover... A&P/Super Fresh fans most definitely need to to click here.
The ceiling inside is covered with plastic while work is being done on the roof. Creates a cool lighting effect in these photos.
Fantastic shot of the interior sign. Hard to believe this sign is still going strong after 47 years!
This photo brilliantly captures the grandeur of the pitched-roof stores. Clayton remains the only structurally unaltered pitched-roof store in the entire chain.
Thanks again to John for sharing these photos with us. You can visit his Clayton collection here and which includes additionally commentary for each photo.
