I am sure most of us remember the F.W. Woolworth stores of days gone by. Perhaps they are still around in some parts of the world such as the U.K., but as for Canada and the U.S., they have sadly disappeared.
The F.W. Woolworth stores were the "old five and dime" stores. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the selection of merchandise and prices were very good, and they had a very long lunch counter where you could order a breakfast or lunch...or just a soft drink, coffee, piece of pie, etc. Whatever you ordered, it was always fresh and delicious...and at a great price. I really miss these stores.
I have found many photos on the internet in reference to F.W. Woolworth that I will share with you all.
First photo was taken in 1926.
