If you go to the Google Map and move the gold guy to the corner building which you think is the Family Dollar (but that is the next building 203), you will see a building painted half brown and half cream with Bonita on it. That of course is the same building that you see in the post card.

OPEN 1930-1969?


1930 Dent Theaters (Publix)?
