Today’s photo is from Connie Randolph. It features a postcard of a Poverty Day parade on Allen Street in State College.
According to Randolph, the Gregory family started their business with a candy store, which can be seen to the left in the photo. They later had the Holiday Inn on South Atherton Street, where the Ramada State College Hotel and Conference Center is now located.
