69th Street

Here is a recent picture of an amazing Moorish building at 69th Street, across from the Terminal at the bottom of the hill.  Judy Young thinks it was the old Frank & Seder department store.  Can anyone confirm that?  Does anyone remember Kressge’s 5&10 (the forerunner of KMart, children) and the Penn Fruit grocery at the top of the hill?   Of course, we all remember the giant slide set up for Christmas and Easter.
