Scope and Content: Sheldon Steinberg recounts the Jewish and non-Jewish stores, businesses, and institutions that were located on Yesler Way in the 1930's and 1940's, which were used by the Jews who lived in the neighborhood (Central Area). Most of the stores mentioned were located on Yesler Way from 26th Avenue to about 12th Avenue, near where the Jews lived. In addition, he mentions some of the businesses in the downtown area, between 1st Avenue and 3rd Avenue, and Yesler Way and Jackson Street, because that is where his family business was located. Other Jews also owned retail stores in that area.
