Today’s Top 5

Graphics look familiar

Seems unlikely, but those signs have a Theodore Geisel feel to them.

Still in business.

Smith's Complete Grocery, founded in 1927, is still there at 55 N. Hockett Street in Porterville.

Spam a Lot

Even after adjusting for inflation the prices are not that bad. Except for the Spam, which would equate to about $6.17 per can.

The Green Grocer

I'm expecting Joe Carcione to appear.

Someone please colorize this!

Would love to see this in color.

Coffee the Charioteers love

So good, it was served at all of the races! I wish we had a place to buy produce like that around here!
