Old Worthington - May 27, 1941

Old Worthington May 27, 1941  National V- Day

Do you see "FOR NATIONAL V-DAY" on the bottom of the sign for  the Thiron Clock Bread on the left side of the photo of a grocery store in Worthington?  Don O'Brien identifies the store as the A&P in Worthington.

Old Worthington c. 1941

As Worthington prepares for the 2010 Memorial Day Parade this old photo from Don O'Brien's of a High St. grocery store, shows that National  V-DAY  was May 27, 1941. 

Don O'Brien grew up north of Worthington on W. Wilson Bridge Rd.  which was out in the country back then. According to his notes on the photo he took a series of photos for Worthington News, the local newspaper of the day.

Did V - DAY mean Victory Day?  Was this photo taken later in the year with a sign on the bread commemorating a victory on May 27, 1941?  VE and VJ Day were in 1945 and Don O'Brien graduated from Worthington High School in 1941?  1942?

The photo on Flickr has a conversation ranging from the food on the shelf to what V Day in the bread sign means.  Don O'Brien (DOK1 on Flickr titled the photo) : "1941: 10-cents-a-loaf Bread"

Old Worthington refers to the area of Worthington that was the original village settled in 1803.   1941 was long after that but the stores on High Street would be in what we today refer to as Old Worthington.
