WPCNR PHOTO OF THE DAY. By the WPCNR Roving Photographer. May 2, 2006: Cappelli Enterprises is demolishing the last vestiges of the old Main Street Block at Mamaroneck and Main. In the process an old storefront sign from the 1950s, prior to its incarnation as Busch Jewelers, we believe is revealed: a window back in time to a gentler era of style and fashion in White Plains when women wore skirts to work, and dresses to school instead of pants and tank tops. Not that that is bad, mind you. We miss you, Shelley Fabares, and My Little Margie. A reader has found 1950 shots of the shop which reveal it to be the old Lorelei clothing store.
