188 Commercial Street

Impulse Art Gallery
Impulse is the latest in a long string of commercial tenants at the base of this unusually large building. In the mid-20’s, it was a clothing store known as Brennan’s. Marion “Bert” Perry took the space over in 1939 for his brief-lived Central Cash Market, selling groceries, produce and meat. Within a year, it was the Williams Market, specializing in seafood and groceries. By the end of the 1940’s, it was an electrical appliance store known as Carter & Carter. By the 1950s, it was an appliance supply and maintenance shop called Jacob’s Radio Service.
