L.S. Dooley, Jeweler Ledger

 Collection
Identifier: RH-A-3516

By 1964 it appears that Dooley had moved his business to a new location at 111 ½ W. Michigan Street. This may have been caused by new jewelers moving into the area, as seen within the 1964 Telephone Directory which has three jewelers all listed on N. Main Street.
