Time Travel: Early Easy Street from 1961 and Going to the 1920s to a Tire Shop Located in Grafton

If this doesn't look familiar, there's a reason for it.This is the entrance to Easy Street in 1961 as residential development was beginning to take off in the city. This is the view of the road coming off of Johnson Avenue.
This is a photo of a tire shop in Grafton in the 1920 and, as you can tell, the tires look nothing like they do today. Doesanyone know who is shown in the photo? If so, comment below.The business was beside the railroad station and the Willard Hotel was situated to the left.
