My paternal grandmother worked in a clothing store which was in one of these buildings, located on McCarty Avenue. My grandparents frequently took my sister, cousins, and me to visit a store when we were little called "Fink's," which was still set up like an old time general store. I seem to remember it had wooden floors. They had great toys - huge bins of them. It was also in one of these buildings on McCarty Ave., but I forget which.

What a nice surprise to see Eagle Lake through your lens! Fink's was in the building that is now Tyler Studio. Someone stole "Rice" from that Drug Store sign - my Granny worked there and we'd go visit her and have a snack at the lunch counter all the time. Wish there were still places like that around to visit!
