This is from a little before my time but I believe that this is on the north side of the 100 block of Bridge Street where the bead and bicycle stores are now. The iron fence on the right is a clue. It may have been the Acme or maybe the original site of the Daily Republican. It was torn down and replaced by the steel worker’s union hall.

I think this is the old "Daily Republican" newspaper office on East Bridge St. This was the original daily newspaper of Phoenixville before the moved up to the old bank bldg. next to the Colonial and before it was changed to The Phoenix.

Gerry Fox and Jim L. are both correct - this was the original office of the Daily Republican before it moved to 225 Bridge. The building now on this site houses the bead store and bike store.
