Overview

Label Ginsburg is standing in front of Ginsburg's grocery counter wearing a suit and bowler hat. Canned and dry goods are displayed on the shelves as well as a large sign for Hills Brothers Coffee. The store was located at 1401 Grove St., Denver, Colorado in Denver's Westside Colfax Jewish community. When a sign painter made a mistake and spelled the Ginsberg surname with a "u" instead of an "e," Label changed the family name to Ginsburg.
