There are some good signs in this photo including Coney Island Lunch and behind it an old Bad Boy sign (you’ll have to zoom in). Photo circa 1966.

Did the Meyer’s store become a hardware store ? I remember a great curved store front along there.
And if you’re in the area, there’s a great cafe on the north side – Locomotive.

The street looks busy in 1966 – it was practically deserted twenty years later, and stayed that way until just a few years ago. My mom used to go to the Junction from Mount Dennis for fancy shopping, while going downtown was a big deal, like going to another city (which, technically, I guess it was.)
