Photo Du JourWindsor

Chopp’s Market

Today’s entry, comes by way of reader Steve, who submitted this flyer he found in his house. The flyer made its way behind the kitchen cabinets, against the wall where it sat since 1953.

How about a pound of rice for 19 cents?

A “peck” of potatoes? Yeah, I had to look it up. Look like it was a 20 lb. bag.

Steve also told me in the email that the building was still standing. So out I went to 1010 Campbell to see what was there….

Bars on the inside and the outside of the windows… 🙂

It’s always nice to find these little bits of information, and to find out some of the unknown history of the buildings we see and drive past on a regular basis.

Thanks again to Steve for sharing this.
