Wrong City

I believe this photo is most likely of Franklin, Pa, 8 miles south of Oil City, Pa, because it came from a Franklin High School Year Book !

Edwards Brothers in Oil City

The Edwards Brothere store was in Oil City.

In 1914 James joined in partnership with William Stevenson for ownership and management of a Dry Goods store on Center Street in the city. Two years later William once again became a partner with his brother to manage what became Edwards Brothers Department Store. They remained in that Business until James’s death in 1931 and William’s in 1936.

Following William’s death his wife Clyde and then his daughter Cecil kept the business open and thriving until 1946 when fire once again caused the loss of an Edwards business. The store burned to the ground and was not rebuilt.

More information about the brothers who came to the US from Scotland and lived in Spartansburg, PA can be found on the website: http://spartansburghistory.org
