Cape Frozen Foods was established by W.H. "Bill" Daniels in 1945 and operated until 1971. This photo at 207 Broadway was likely taken before 1956, the year the granite cobblestones were removed. Note the remains of streetcar rails in the middle of Broadway hill. The dwelling at the right was the Daniels' residence. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)
