Looking into the original ground-breaking Piggly Wiggly store at 79 Jefferson Ave. Opened in 1916 by Clarence Saunders, the supermarket was the first in the world to offer "self-service". Prior to this, customers would order from a counter and the clerk would retrieve items from behind. Saunders' innovation made product placement and branding integral to grocery store layouts. At its peak in 1932, Piggly Wiggly operated 2,600 stores across the U.S. and Canada. Today, they number only 600, mostly in the South and Midwest.

Original built in #1927 Now a strong need for redevelopment! Read a little on #sanbernardino cities #history ⬇️ #andersonbuilding *As the last years of the 19th century waned, the giant railway companies eventually found their way to San Bernardino, changing it from a sleepy town into an enterprising city. The Santa Fe, the Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific railroads all converged on the city, making it the hub of their Southern California operations.

Competition between the railroads set off a rate war, which brought thousands of newcomers to California in the great land boom of the 1880's. When the Santa Fe Railway established a transcontinental link in 1886, the already prosperous valley exploded. Even more settlers flocked from the East and population figures doubled, from 6,150 in 1900 to 12,779 in 1910, the year that the San Bernardino Chamber of Commerce was first organized.

Lonesome on the bank of a river in Heemstede, North-Holland, stands this highly original Dutch villa (1931), designed by the sculptor Lydia van Waveren, who lived here with her husband Theo, an entrepeneur in bulbs. Lydia had her studio in the fancy, FLW-architecture-like house, which today is a monument.

E.H. and Bessie Byrd McLean Crump, courtesy Memphis Public Library & Information Center. #memphistypehistory⠀

In 1902, Bessie married Edward Hull Crump, a bookkeeper who had recently come to Memphis from Holly Springs. Her parents “advanced him $50,000 to gain control of the firm where he worked."⠀

This financial boost put Crump on the fast track to wealth and political power, and by 1909, he had become Mayor “Boss” Crump, a significant and polarizing figure in Memphis history who later served two terms as a U.S. Congressman.
