Hi Neighbor Heritage: 1945 ‘Gansett Billboard

Shot on the corner of Dorrance and Weybosset, this image appeared in the Providence Journal around 1945. The JWU library would be behind the photographer and today stands a Dunkin’ Donuts (what else) on the opposite corner. Oh wait, look up because there’s a Narragansett billboard up top that building. Sure does make you want a taste of frosty joy right now. Hi Neighbor, Have a ‘Gansett! Made On Honor, Sold On Merit since 1890!
