National Wallpaper & Paint Store 343 W. 7th St. Lee Gordon mid 1940's - mid 1960's "That business was started by my Dad, Lee Gordon, somewhere in the mid 1940s and stayed open till the mid-60s until it became too dangerous for my father to operate any more. It was a great place where so many of the great people of Chester came through. As a kid, I was thrilled that Danny Murtaugh and Mickey Vernon were customers of my Dad's, as well as Al Alberts. It was a great time. I remember eating at the State Restaurant every Friday and shopping downtown with my mother at Spears and Weinbergs. I'll never forget when JFK campaigned in Chester before the election --Wow!

Thanks to
Jerry Gordon
