Historic Photo Exhibit at Mark Anthony's Hair Cuts

J. Kenneth Leap: "In 1946 my grandparents opened their new food store on the corner of 2nd Ave and the Black Horse Pike in Runnemede. Today the building is occupied by the Polish American Deli and Mark Anthony’s Hair Cuts. Mark has allowed me to mount an exhibition of photos associated with the store’s grand opening. Stop in and visit! If your family’s from Runnemede check out the copy of the original customer list and look for your family name. Make sure you read the captions to find out who ate my Dad's pet chicken"
