The corner of 26th Avenue East and London Road keeps popping up in photos I find in the Attic. The picture above shows a grocery that once was located on that corner; today, the site is occupied by Black Woods restaurant.
Below is photograph of the same store from earlier that year – Feb. 3, 1961, to be exact. There was a name change during those few months, and the building’s facade was renovated. A sign in the window reads "Closing Out Sale," so there must have been a change in ownership.
Does anyone want to share any memories of this store?
