Photo 21-PMON-22

Comments

Firework/souvenir store - stores like these were once a common sight along US 231, a main route to Florida. Oversized bottle rocket out front - painted to read "BIG BOMB", later "BLAST OFF." One of the many signs along the exterior read, "SEE 'JAWS' HERE!"

Building sits abandoned today. Coca-cola sign visible in this shot was there as of 2019.
