    goes to show you how much the government is lying/uninformed in their inflation data. By the U.S. Gov't calculation, oranges would only cost about $0.16 in 2011 dollars. The only pres candidate that gets this (and has been preaching it for decades) is Ron Paul.

    Great Photo of the Past. Reminds me of Otto Anderson's Candy store , only instead of Fruit in the Window he had CANDY !! Great Color.

    pejorg2000 I don't think that's where the YMCA is now. The YMCA is on the odd numbered side of the block. If the grocery store's address was 1000 P Street, it was across from the YMCA where the Embassy Suites now takes up the entire block. The YMCA is an old building, and may have even co-existed with this grocery store. The grocery was probably at the northwest corner of 10th and "P," across from the bus station and diagonal from the old courthouse.
