PHOENIX Arizona.



Everything about this is perfect, if I may express an opinion. The Penney's facade is a gorgeous piece of modernism the theater is zigzag moderne, and appears to have a nickel facade around the stores. The "Jones" in the Western Store was no ordinary Jones; it was Robert T. Jones a drugstore owner who'd served a term as governor from 1939 to 1941. He opened the store in 1953. Oh, and he was a civil engineer who worked on the Panama Canal.

The Fox was demolished in the 70s. I get conflicting hits on the address, but this site says it was at the corner of SE Washington and 2nd.

It's like none of this ever existed.
