There was a Model Market at the corner of Vance Jackson and Eland. It was there until the early 70s. Since then it was a Deluxe market, and Market Basket, and quite a few restaurants. It will be torn down soon, and a new fire station # 19 will be built there!

The first Orange Julius I remember seeing, and trying was at Hemisfair '68. They had stands all over the grounds.

I remember the Waitz Model Market on N. New Braunfels. My mother in law would always let me know what bargain meat was on sale, like 29cents hamburger, or something like that. I collected green stamps from them, and purchased my pressure cooker, from the redemption center on Broadway in Alamo Heights!

Dang!!! there was a discount ladies clothing shop around there at the time but cannot for the life of me remember the name! If I remember right, it closed down in the early to middle 80's!!!

I probably just forgot about the one on Vance Jackson. There may have been one on Goliad road too!! I remember Model Market as the place to get Shasta Sodas!! The orange Julius I mentioned probably was built mid 60. Could have been at time of Hemisfair's construction.

There was an Orange Julius in Wonderland when I was racing slot cars- 1966 or 67. I didn't like the Orange Julius at Hemisfair because they used powdered milk and orange juice. The one at Wonderland was was better because they used fresh ingredients

There was a grocery store on the corner of Goliad/Clark/Gevers(where the vacant Albertson's sits) and another one on Goliad Rd near Pecan Valley. I think they were a Model Market, but not sure. Also, there was an Orange Julius in McCreless mall just outside Montgomery Wards.

My dad and uncles used to get squid from Polunsky's for snapper fishing. Think they got them for a share of the catch. Man I'd love some red snapper right now. Sorry though didn't know any employees. I worked at 5 points a couple years in early 80's. Good Luck.

I can't remember for sure but believe there was a Model Market there. I'm thinking down near Pecan Valley at Goliad. I remember the orange Julius outside M/W's at McCreless Mall.. I miss M/W's !!

There was indeed a Model Market where Clark hit Gevers/Goliad Road across from the Parkair Drive-In Theater. It's good to see someone mention Five Points as it was an important retail hub once upon a time and home to several popular places including Polunskys & Schlusser Cafe on W. Laurel just to name couple. It was a true navigational landmark for crosstown travelers but now it's little more than a semi-confusing intersection of minimal interest except historic.

That's a neat snapshot of the Capn' so I tweaked it a little and hope you won't mind. It's kind of a hobby as I love making old fotos look better if possible. Thanks for sharing this one.
