Back in Time: Arlington, MA

Today's picture is admittedly not as spectacular as some of the New York City ones I've been posting the last few days, but it's still pretty cool nonetheless! I think I paid around 50 cents or a dollar for an original print of this image of the Capitol Theater in Arlington, Massachusetts at an antique store outside of Worcester, but I didn't buy it for the theater (although I love that building and sign). I bought it because you can see just the end of a grocery store to the far left of the picture!
I can't determine what store this was, but it appears to be a chain (notice the "grocery stores" rather than just "grocery store"). And it looks like this picture may be from a bit earlier than the New York ones, given the age of the vehicles shown. We have a couple more days' worth of old pictures, but tomorrow is a special one!
