South Driver St.
The pink building used to be a fresh fish shop (long ago!). The shop keepers lived in the attached house.
the house was owned by LP Seagroves Sr. He also owned the whole corner of buildings. Ten Children were raised there. The Seagroves family did not run the fish market. It was the East Durham Fish Market A Mr. Holder started a meat market there. A Mr. Charles Smith ran the fish market. Mr. Seagroves had a grocery in the taller building to the right. This information came from my mother, Rose Seagroves Smith. She was the youngest child of the home and is the last child living...at 84. I remember the fish market and spent many happy holidays at the house.
