I've posted this before, but no time to take new photos before leaving on our European jaunt. This shop is jam-packed with everyday necessities, and those things you decide you need for dinner at 7pm on Sunday night. Open long hours, this is a typical example of hard-workign migrant enterprise. When i moved into my street in 1984, the owner was a postwar Greek immigrant. He sold it to the present Lebanese-born proprietor. Several of his 13 sons and daughters work there from time to time (including two you can see here). The family works hard, and the children are making the classic immigrant journey into the professions as they complete high school and move on to university to study architecture, pharmacy, accountancy and other professions.
