Broadway Florist has been around for more than 50 years!!! This place got me started on my love of Mannequin collecting--look at the display windows. This used to be where they'd place mannequins in quirky costumes, and sometimes there would be mannequins inside.

This Broadway sign is now partially covered up by a tacky billboard. I fear that the paint has also been severly eroded over the last couple of winters.

If you see this image on (any particular)Facebook group it is STOLEN STOLEN STOLEN!!   One group has ruined it by ignoring and arguing with me about my request to no longer use my photos.  Here are a couple shots of the Rockton Plaza Loglis (Now Schnucks) in 1990.

This place will very soon be totally gone. It was around even when I was a little kid, but now it's empty.

Close up of the sign for Cuppy's. Now defunct...What was "& more"? this place is the size (literally) of a port-a-potty, and if you look at the sign, about all they had was coffee. & more would be appropriate if they had soup, sandwiches, wi-fi access, books--something!

I used to work here 1991-1994. This was the place for East High students to work and hang out. Formerly this site was a Geris Hamburgers. There was the Clark station to the right and Mister Donut to the left. Currently it is a Popeyes.
