Wonderful World of Novelties

Around 11 Water Street, just North of King Street, you'll find a decommissioned truck from Rebman's, a shop of gifts and novelties. Rebman's was founded in 1954 and was a fixture in Lancaster's history as the place where everyone bought candy, costumes and games. The store closed in 2004. Chancing upon this late-20th-century graphic is what makes Lancaster a magical place. If you look at Google Earth's street image of Water & King Streets, you'll see the truck parked here (perhaps permanently). This truck, has thus become embedded in the city's virtual presence.
