Oh how I wish I had pictures! It was the summer of ’63 to the best of my recollection. 16th Street Albertsons, the Beach Boys were there, in the parking lot. My two sisters and I walked to the store, which was only 6 blocks a way, so excited. My older sister in her wheel chair and us beside her, worked our way to the front and we got to be up close and personal… We thought it was so awesome that Albertsons would have the BEACH BOYS in their parking lot… but they were still pretty new. They also used to have the Eddy’s bread small Ferris wheel out front and give us little loves of bread. Oh such sweet memories.
