very cool, gray shot.
Looks like it's a historically preserved corner.

Where was this place? On Shamrock and Walnut?

Thanks!

Rather bleak day, but the building has a timeless appeal to it.

Tash: The gas pumps are for show but there is a functioning business there.

Altadenahiker: Quite a compliment! Thank you.

Anon: That's the location. Across from the church.

Paula: I like this building. Always surprised when places like this last so long.

When I was in grade school at Immaculate Conception in the 1950s, there was a little grocery store in the space just to the north of the gas pumps and office. I suspect their prime merchandise was candy and sodas and quarts of milk. I can't remember the name of the family that ran it.

There was another little "corner grocery" up at Shamrock & Colorado, run by the Wiebe family (pronounced Wee-Bee). The kids went to IC.
I was wondering when someone was going to post this joint. A curious area
