I believe this is the building I remember on Hamlet Ave between Wilmington and Raleigh streets, perhaps across the street from what I think was the Colonial grocery store. As a child in the 1950's I spent many an hour pressed up against the glass watching the bottling assembly line. It was fascinating for someone my age. What a good memory. It was just around the corner from my grandparents home.

I did not notice originally that the photo was taken by Mr Yost. That has to be the same man that was a photographer, J O Yost, that lived on corner of Spring St and Wilmington streets. He lived next door to my grandparents. He had a studio in his home. He took many pictures of me as a baby, almost 70 years ago. I recall the Yosts to be very kind people.
