There is something so wonderful about storefront / entries like this


j_calhoun

The building is still there. Perhaps not for much longer though — it is in sad shape. WWI poster in the window.

Your username has calhoun and I believe that says "Calhoun Grocer" - I assume that's related?

There is a nice person from Kansas City who posts many of their old photos to r/thewaywewere u/leeannlongsocks


LeeAnnLongsocks

Thanks for the shout out! ;-)

A blast from the past. Great to see your name again. When I am in the area, I drive by the spots in your photos. There is notable rehab occurring. Can still find loads of buildings visible before the trees grew.


LeeAnnLongsocks

Indeed. I need to get back to posting some more pictures. I have too many projects going on, haha. Must be really cool to see the before and after look. Hopefully I'll make it out to KCMO someday so I can see my ancestors' stomping grounds.

I love this!


chiefkeefOFFICIAL

Awesome, very cool for you all to have that history.


djlovepants

Much better than taking your username from John C. Calhoun.

it is sp00ky season - talking with a ghost on an internet forum, what a way to kick it off

Great photo! Because of the poster, it would be after US entry into the war, so probably closer to 1918.


PeterVanNostrand

Poster was made in 1918. So it’s 1918 at the earliest.

Wow. I grew up in KCK. Right across the street from this is Chelsea Elementary. This store was a candy store in the 60's. Used to go in there nearly everyday!


therebelinc

I grew up down the street on 25th


CoolGuyFromCompton

What is it now?


j_calhoun

Maybe an apartment? Or abandoned.


daGOAT_SMOKEHEAVY

Dang I used to live on 17th and Wood Ave it would be cool to see some of the vacant commercial on the strip become renovated to neighborhood amenities again.

LOL Well that's unfortunate. Why couldn't he just name it Safeway?

Where was Wood Street?

Kool history! Never knew the buildings beginnings. As a child I was one of the first students to attend the newly built school across the street in 2000. I remember seeing this building everyday. In it’s last years around the 90’s mid 2000’s, I remember this space as something commercial then turned into a makeshift-Apartment.
