L. F. Sherwood/J. A. Wakeman Store, Harbor Road

Southport, Connecticut

Levi Franklin Sherwood ran a grocery store on Harbor Road in a building just west of the original drugstore building; the site is now that of Perry Green. In the 1870's Sherwood was in business with Joseph A. Wakeman, whose sign "J.A. Wakeman" is visible. According to information from Royal Everts of Southport, grandson of L. F. Sherwood, the tall man in the doorway, center, is L. F. Sherwood. The other men have not been identified.
