Grocery Store, Yuma, Arizona
An "interesting grocery store"
In response to his company's call for photographs of "interesting grocery stores," Hills Bros. Coffee salesman Hal Sharp came up with this offering in 1929. It shows 51-year-old E.L. Venegas with daughters Rita, Catalina, and Ruilino in the store he had owned since 1913. "A native Spanish American typical in every respect," is how Sharp described Venegas. "The store is located in the mexican [sic] district of Yuma," he continued, "and his merchandising operations are confined to dealing with Spanish people."
