 Dorchester Illustration no. 2171 McGrath Electric

In 1940, the McGrath Electric Company documented their acquisition of a truck with photos. Their storefront was located at 1726 Dorchester Avenue across from St. Marks Roman Catholic Church next to a drugstore. The drugstore space is now occupied by Romel Dry Cleaners, and the McGrath Electric space is now occupied by Jabez Variety Plus.

The photo of the truck was taken at the back of the building.
