The Post a Picture Thread


Recommended Posts

In this thread, feel free to post a picture of anything that you want to and tell a story about it. Because I have an interest in retail, many of the photos I will share will be of shops.

I have mentioned this before, but my favorite retail prototype is the "Centennial," a style of Early American/Colonial building built by the A&P Supermarkets from roughly 1957-72. (The official unveiling of the Centennial prototype was during A&P's 100th Anniversary in 1959; hence, it's name.) At one time, Centennials were a dime a dozen, but sadly so few remain in operation. Below are five which still are A&P Supermarkets; all photographs were taken by Flickr user "Dan Asnis."

    • I always liked Harley dancing in the opening and the crescendo at the end but I think I'm considerably more partial to the '80s GL theme (does it have a name? idk if it was Jack Urbont but it came after the disco mess) vs. Hold On To Love today. This is the one I mean (timestamped). They kept it til '90, I guess (the later one is faster and more synth, and I liked it too). I also always really liked the haunting light through the trees/Ritournelle. It was mysterious and kept the tone for me with the Dobsons/Marland's stuff. I knew AMC (still overbudget, having moved to California) was in real trouble when they dumped the masterful scrapbook opening and basically xeroxed GL's horrible PowerPoint slide, BTW:  
    • I'll never understand why they dumped the '80s ATWT theme. I always hated the cornfield opening. The overly dramatic music did not match the stories at all.
