Comment: This photo appears to have been taken at the same time as the Morse photograph (ID #109). The sign suggests that the building was being used by an antiques dealer, probably George Perley Morse, whose collection of photographs of Brookhaven Hamlet are a valuable resource.

Comment: After George Perley Morse purchased the Chapel House from the South Haven Presbyterian Church, he and his wife Ruth used it as an antiques shop. This business card was printed about 1946, and was found by Eban Ludlow, current owner of what is now a residence, in 2013.
