Del Monte Market

The Del Monte Market in south Phoenix has been operating out of this building since 1908. There are still hints of the original store signs gently fading on the sides of this unique brick building. This must have been a very remote location when this store opened. It’s only recently that houses have grown up all around the area.

It is quite a busy place. While I was there taking pictures I saw many people come and go.

The brick work is great. Too bad they have boarded over the windows instead of thinking of something attractive to do with the space.

cute place. I can see James Dean walking out the door with a cocoa-cola in his hand.

Interesting combination of (brick?) colours.

Great the some of the old signs are still there.

I like these old places. The clerks probably know all the customers by name.

I kind of imagine a fire truck and a dalmatian.
