Altadena Department Store 1930

The Altadena Department Store took up five store fronts on the north side of Mariposa Street, west of Lake: 731, 722, 735, 737, and 739.  Today the address numbers are different.
This ad ran in The Altadena Press in 1930

The store sold everything from school supplies to toys to stationary to house goods.  It was probably more like an old fashioned five and dime than a modern day department store. 

Are these the five storefronts? 


With nearly 5000 square feet of floor space the Altadena Department Store met all the needs of our community.  
Painted sign on the back of the
building is no longer there.
The N in A-Z says: No need of
going away from Altadena to buy
