A Few East Pike Street Landmarks still visible in the 70's

I really like this picture from a Canonsburg 4th of July parade from the early 70's... In the fore front shows Leroy's Music Shop's parade entry a "turtle float" covered entirely from carpet remnants... but

Even more interesting, are a few past East Pike Street "landmarks" (now long gone) that are still visible in the pictures background. 

The background offers a rare glimpse of the Continental Theater with its jutting marquee, next to the theater was George's Soda & Candy Shop, a very popular teen hang of the time and then the prominent curved glass bloc entrance of the Standard Bar.
