  1. So that is the building where the natural market is now on the right side of the street? Trying to imagine the corner.

  2. I believe this would be the block that is across the street from the 99 cent store since I believe the train station is on 18th street

  3. Yes, that should be right. The left-hand (western) corner would be the photo store, the one next to the stinky-sidewalk fish store. I love being able to picture how it looked decades ago.
