Description

A horse-drawn wagon passes the F. W. Monnish Building Materials Store. The location of the store is unknown. The sign on the wagon reads "Phil W. Blondheim." Blondheim owned a clothing store.

Blondheim came from Washington, D.C., to Tuscaloosa and began working as a salesman for the firm of Friedman & Rosenau, continuing with them until April, 1895, when he opened his own store which grew nicely from its modest start. His business was located on Broad Street (now University Boulevard) between Market Street (now Greensboro Avenue) and Monroe Streets (now 21st Avenue).

Blondheim married Alabama Strickland of Tuscaloosa.
