Isaly's Store Pictures

Most of the hundreds of Isaly's stores are gone. Few of them were photographed, so here's my attempt to get at least one picture of each. Click on a thumbnail for a larger image.

Credits for loaned photos can be found here.) Please contact me at the e-mail address below if you want to use or reproduce any of these photos, and of course, any use should credit the book, Klondikes, Chipped Ham, & Skyscraper Cones: The Story of Isaly's by Brian Butko. For more information, contact the publisher, Stackpole Books, at (800) 732-3669.
