Last week’s Remember When mystery photo showed Jo Smith, a popular waitress at the Old Douglas Market on Central Avenue in September 1989. The ODM, which served lunches, dinners and beverages, was located on Central Avenue where the Versailles Salon & Day Spa is now at 1010 Central Ave.

This week’s mystery photo shows a local merchant in his store in November 1988. Who was he, what business did he operate and who owns the business now?

If you know the answer or can’t wait until next week to get it, email Sam Matthews at or call 830-4234.
