I remember a middle aged thin dark-haired white blind lady who used to panhandle in front of the Emporium back in the early to mid 60's. She did not look ragged, and she had a German shepard that was with her sometimes, but not all of the time. Sometimes, she sat on a chair with her white cane in front of her. I remember that she was almost always in front of one of the Emporium entrances and probably made a good living simply panhandling from the well-dressed shoppers on Market Street. Then, early one morning, my best friend and I were downtown early, before the stores opened. We observed this woman being dropped off in front of the store by a well-to-do gentleman in a Cadillac - not sure what that was all about??
