The Jacksonville Yacht Storage business, first registered in February of 1932 was located at 17 Riverside Avenue,  just to the West of McCoy’s Creek where it feeds into the St. Johns River on land that is now part of the Florida Times-Union property.  To the east of this intersection (the left of this image) Riverside Avenue ended and Broad Street began and a number of other businesses had their buildings located there.  According to photographer Loyd Sandgren’s notes this photograph was taken in the 1940′s but judging from the vehicles in the photo it is much more likely to have been taken in the early 1950′s.
