13419 Interpretation

8/26/2009 This is an image of the "occupation" category for Max Harrison in the 1900 U.S. Census. At about this time Max owned a clothing store. I am seeking an interpretation of the words in this box written by the census taker. The first word is "Proprietor..." but the next words are unclear. The last may be "store." I would be grateful for any help in interpreting the second and third words. Thank you!

13353 Do you recognize?

8/26/2009 A photo of my maternal g-f, Edward Hempel, who disappeared shortly after this photo was taken. He was probably known by a different name in his native country of Poland/Russia and also wherever he went after leaving Philadelphia. He came to the US abt. 1912 and was born 1887-8. I realize profiles are difficult to ID, but this is the only photo I have ever seen of him and would be forever grateful for any leads. View the post, there are no responses
