Bill Haley bought cowboy outfit here.

This was the original store of Bernard Rodeo Ben Lichtenstein, who outfitted famous cowboys such as Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. In the mid-1940's, singer Bill Haley bought a second-had cowboy outfit here, ten years before Billy Haley and the Comets became famous with Rock Around the Clock. . This information is from a Mark de la Vina column in the Phila. Daily News, 9/18/92, which can be found online.
