The man at center is Henry Alvah June (1861-1943). The woman at left is probably his wife Mary Philipina (Alexander) June (1864-1930).

"Among the most flourishing and prosperous business houses of Port Allegany is the meat market conducted by H.A. June. Mr. June has conducted this business for four and a half years, purchasing it from S.R. Neece, who had already established a good business there. Mr. June has still farther built up the business, and numbers among his patrons a large number of satisfied customers.

The market handles a fine supply of fresh and salt meats, pork, beef, mutton and fish, and eggs, poultry, home rendered lard, and vegetables in season. All goods are kept strictly pure and fresh, and nothing but the best is carried in stock. Courteous attention is given to customers and both phones are at the disposal of his numerous customers. A specialty is made of prompt deliveries, and the store as a whole is conducted on up to date principles.

Mr. June himself is a well known resident of this section, having resided here and at Annin Creek all his life. He was born and raised on Annin Creek, receiving his early education in the schools in that vicinity. He came into possession of a fine farm near the head of Annin Creek, which he conducted successfully until he entered the butcher business. His son Fred now has charge of this farm.

Mr. June is highly respected as a business man, being courteous and honorable in his dealings. His business integrity and strict attention to the details of his business, has given him his present degree of success and will continue to give him his due share of prosperity."
