They did live in Olmos Park - a beautiful home. I saw the inside briefly once when I had to drop papers off there when I worked for their CPA a few years later. The commissary, Handy Andy and CPM were all owned by the Jaffe's. Movie business? It's possible. They seem to have their hands in quite a few pots
Can't remember if I went to their house or saw it while looking for another. The commissary on Broadway wasn't that the old FedMart and Gulf Mart bldg.?

I did go to Hemisfair. It was awesome!

I was in the inaugural class of John Jay High School. One of the original students has a great web site and I've gotten reaquainted with people I have not seen in 40 years and some I never knew while I was there.

Was John Jay off Blanco & Jackson Keller?

I remember the first store where I saw a scanner. It was called Magnamart and it was on South Flores (behind Solo Serve). It later became a grocery store called Eagle. This was in 1976 or 1977.

Thanks, SATX56 for the SAN ANTONIO THEATRES HISTORY WEBSITE..... It has old photos of the Mission, San Pedro, Trail, and other drive ins. Also got to see my beloved old Harlandale theater inside and out... even if they did misname it "Harling" in the reference column. Such a great way to stir some old visual memories. Thanks! You are quiet the reference machine, you old goat. (I'm almost 62).

SATX56 You and I were super great fans of the old fifties Southside Sears. Any photos of that place laying around? Anybody? Inside shots would be great too. I have a 1957 Sears catalogue... great fun checking out those items, but it makes me
"homesick", if you know what I mean.

Hi ! Old guy. Yes I was happy to get those photos of the Harlandale. Been after them a long time . I know the Zintgraff collection at the Institute of Texan Cultures has every photo you or I could ever dream of. Love to have one in color. Yes, I notified them about the misspelling. Which I may have just been guilty of. If I had a memory, I have discovered many things . If only I could remember.

Remember the mural on the wall up high in the back of the shoe department?
