I person that I used to work with informed me that he used to deliver groceries for Pine Lake Market many years ago. His name is Eddie Rossi. Anyway, I remember it in the early 1990's when the shelves were partially empty. I do seem to remember a nursery run by two women at or near the location of that horrible looking real estate building. I think it was in the 1960's. They had a large lathe house and specialized in Fuchsias and Begonias. And I believe that there was a Johnson's Tamales right on Vicente. In those days Wawona Street was not blocked off at the end of the 1300 block and you could drive right along the north side of Stern Grove. I think it was kids driving too fast that resulted in the barricades.
