The left photograph is the E.R. Daniels home in Wanchese, NC and the right picture is his store.  These 2 photos were submitted by Lou Ellen Daniels Quinn who stated ".... My parents (Jimmie Tucker Daniels & Merle Jean Wescott) bought the old house and lived there for many years.  I lived there until I was 2 years old.  The store had the first Wanchese Post Office, established in 1886.  I have documentation that states that his wife Eugenia Pugh Daniels was actually the postmistress.  She ran it until 1914 when Hubby Davis became postmaster..."
