South Carolina Variety Store in #Harlem.

This store opened during what is known as the "Great Migration," the movement of 6 million African-Americans out of the rural Southern United States to the urban Northeast between 1910 and 1970. We particularly love this variety stores's #handpainted #sign and the heart-breaking child's drawing taped to the front window (on the bottom left) that shows the before and after effects of crack on a woman.
