Antonio Chicketti

A new door has gone up at 1911 N 45th, the location of the upcoming Not a Number expansion. Or, to be more precise, an old door.

According to the note attached to the door, the hand-lettered sign was for a 1940s-era shoe repair business that operated in this space. (The note is taped over the street number "1911", in the same hand-lettered font.)

Interestingly, one "Antonio, Chicketti" is the listed inventor of US patent number 2562771, filed in 1951, for a "sewing machine presser-foot automatic control attachment". Could it be the same person?

Does anybody know anything more about this man or his business?

You could check with History House. They are in the know of a lot of Wallingford's past.
