O.P. Slack Grocery

Ad from a 1911 News-Star

I was blown away when I found this. When an address is given for an old building, I like to pull up the Google map street image to see what the site looks like now. Imagine my surprise when I put in the address and saw that this building is still there! Google maps puts you down the way a bit to an empty lot, but if you swing the view around you can’t miss it! You can even see the faint image of O.P. Slack’s name still at the top of it! It looks like that gorgeous balcony is gone though. I’m going to have to go down Ouachita Avenue to see it for myself!
