The rapidly growing northeast section of Tampa, Florida was chosen by Sears, Roebuck & Co. for the location of their magnificent new store at 2010 East Hillsborough Ave. The architecture, tropical landscaping, and huge parking lots exemplify the latest trend in retailing in this area. Postcard circa 1950's. Here is a link for more info on this store on Flickr. Another Sears link at Pleasant Family Shopping.

The OSCAR MAYER WIENERMOBILE vehicle. For over 60 years, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has brought "miles of smiles" to kids of all ages. A favorite at auto shows, the Wienermobile vehicle is also proudly displayed at the Henry Ford Museum.
