Sanitary Fish Market & Restaurant, Morehead City, NC
"On February 10, 1938, two partners, Tony Seamon and Ted Garner, opened a fresh seafood market on the Morehead City waterfront. A small building had been rented from Charles S. Wallace for $5.50 per week with the understanding that no beer or wine would be sold and that the premises be kept clean and neat. The name "Sanitary Fish Market" was chosen by the partners to project their compliance."
Still exists today  Sells wine and beer now.

"Red Delicious Apples. One of the many popular varieties of which this region is famous. Fancy packs are shipped to all parts of the world and afford a sound basis for the economy of Eastern Washington.  Wenatchee and Yakima Valley regions are the growing and shipping centers."
