Before the days of Walmart and Target, there were corner grocery stores, where people would make daily stops to get fresh produce. I saw a photographic body of work a while ago where the photographer documented the current state of these buildings of a bygone era. Shot in black and white with minimal postprocessing, these images portrayed how life has changed in the past 50 or 60 years. Instead of neighborhood corner grocery stores, we now have big box chains strategically placed every 10-15 miles along interstate highways. The photo above is one of these corner stores from a bygone era - it's called Demacks Produce and is located on the corner of 19th and Strand in Galveston. Obviously it's seen better days. I can remember when it was an active produce distributor, but it's since fallen on pretty hard times, and after Ike, well, it hasn't been touched since September.
