Sparkle Car Wash/Firestone in background, Weis Market in front, Stroudsburg PA

The Pocono Auto Company in the back, Acme Markets and Johns Bargain Store in front.

Does look like Congdon St Stroud Twp. with Long Lane Ave slanting at top. Firestone and Sparkle still there, but both in new buildings facing street. Maybe edge of Arlington Elem School far left. Houses now in upper right field. Big Building is now large modern Weis and State liquor store. Beyond far right today at back is Hughes/Eastern Monroe library 1002 Rt 611 or 9th St. formerly Main St Stroudsburg, and beyond far right at middle is Midas Muffler Weis parking lot reaches to Rt. 611. Houses in foreground gone; there is an optical shop there now.
