Cokinos Brothers on H Street
Here it is - the oldest photo so far of the early local chain of "Cokinos Brothers." This particular candy shop was owned by my grandfather, Pete Cokinos (pictured right) at 1103 H Street Northeast. This photo was taken probably around 1919- after his brother, Alek (pictured left) came over from Greece to join him.
