Re: Your Corner Market - Carriage Market

Our corner market when I was growing up in the 1940s and 1950s was at 22nd and Irving for groceries and vegetables. For meat we of course went to Bowcocks. I also remember Mother's Market at 23rd and Irving (it burned sometime in the 1950s)
The owner or manager at 22nd and Irving was Steve.... . He later was at Sunset Super, further down Irving between 24th and 25th, and later still at the Stonestown market. I think there were all owned by QFI.
After Sunset Super opened, 22nd and Irving market was owned and operated by the Mirrabella family, who I think also owned the market at 22nd and Taravel. At City College in the late 1950s, I remember dating their daughter Elena a few times.
For a delacatessen we went to the Franscican on Market Street which was a Scandavian placed operated by Matt and Bertha Peterson, who were related to my patents.
