“This picture was taken looking East at the San Marco Shopping Center, about 1950. You can see the A&P store slightly to the left of center of photo, straight ahead was the bowling alleys, then the telephone building. The road didn’t look too good at the time. S.H. Kress 5&10 cent store can be seen on the right, in the second block. According to Sam’s clock it was 2:25 p.m.” LS
