Vermont Tea and Butter Company (Lawrence, MA)

These two items are 8×10 black and white glossy photographs.  Handwritten on the back is the date Nov. 23, 1928, the photographer’s name E. Thibault, and the subject Vermont Store, Lawrence.  Both are interior shots of the Vermont Store.  The first one is from the interior looking at the open door; the second is from the door looking inward.  These photographs were taken at the Vermont Tea and Butter Store located at  201 Lawrence Street.

Maurice I. Paresky and Aaron J. Berenson began their careers as grocers in 1912, with the opening of the Vermont Tea and Butter Company at 91 Essex Street.  By 1928 there were 19 stores throughout Lawrence as well as a warehouse located at 461 Market Street.  The last year the Vermont Tea and Butter Company had a listing in the Lawrence City Directory was 1952.
