As Usual, More F#&%ing Progress...

This photo was taken this afternoon just west of the intersection @ I-10 & Gessner, facing north.

No telling when the last time this corner was bare. Maybe the late 1950's, maybe earlier. It's all bulldozed flat, waiting for a multistory high rise to go in.

I've been trying to remember all the businesses that have come & gone from that long lot since 1982.

Kroger's (Later an Asian supermarket)
Luther's BBQ
Lotus Chinese restaurant
Cici's Pizza aka "Feces" Pizza
Cornbread's Billiards
Chili's restaurant
Spoons restaurant
Goodson's Cafe
Some Mexican restaurant
Schlotsky's sandwiches
Red Wing Shoes
Rochester Big & Tall, later a Casual Male B&T

and probably a dozen more I can't recall.
