Super Markets & Shopping Centers

Source: Twentieth Century History of Fort Wayne (1975) - John Ankenbruck

Better view of this can be found on my flickr account

This is from John's book - a drawing of where you could find the super markets and shopping centers in and around Fort Wayne. I'm guessing it is from the late 60's - early 70's.

Not much is left from almost 40 years ago.

I am from Van Wert, OH but we used to go to Grandma's in Ft Wayne (near Rudisill) every Sunday. Growing up (and I'll admit, even today) the Scott's sign did not look like a corucopia but a cute dinosaur with its eye way up on top.
