Transcription"When the J.C. Penney Company came into Grafton in 1925 it marked the beginning of a new era in the concept of merchandising from the privately owned business to the chain store. This interior view of the store was taken in 1937. After the fire in 1930, the building was remodeled and the upstairs balcony became the women's ready to wear department." - Typed on a sheet of paper that was attached to the photograph.
