Kwik Check 2_RTP_4 Dec 14 _ SFW

Before it was Win-Dixie, it was called Kwik-Chek … how many of you can remember that name?  OK, I see a few hands out there, not many but I see a few.  I cannot tell you how many times that I walked around this store.  In fact, I can see the lay-out of the inside like it was yesterday and I had just been in picking-up some groceries.  They remodeled the store and did some cosmetic up-grades and then several months later they shut it down and moved out on Bayou Blvd.  It was a big shock to all of the businesses and homes in the neighborhood, since this was the first time that there was a grocery store on 12th Avenue in the vicinity.  I know that I have posted some other panoramas of this area and I do not believe that I have posted this exact one.  If I have, I am sorry.  I am getting to a point that I can not remember all of the hundreds of images I have posted and I do not feel like going back through them now.  Thanks … Frank

This is the corner of 12th Avenue and Gonzalez Street, somewhere around 1956 or 7.  This is where I spent the first 20 something years of my life … anyone that is familiar with my father’s studio knew that it was located just down from that Cadillac parked on the left side of this image.  I have a photo showing the other side of the street that I am working on that I will most in the next day or so.  I know I have posted several photos of this corner in the past, so if you are curious, just search  ” 12th Avenue ” and see what pops up.  Thanks for looking …
