An Older Safeway Store in Alexandria, Virginia #FlashbackFriday

Safeway in Alexandria, Virginia

With the Bradlee Safeway having re-opened recently, this Flashback Friday, we’re taking a look back at an older Safeway store in Alexandria, Virginia.

Like this week’s Throwback Thursday photo, here is a challenge to our readers: Can you tell us where the store was located? Feel free to click on the photo above for a larger view. You are really awesome if you know where these old photos are located.

That looks like 320 Prince Street, now occupied by Sara Campbell.

This is the closest view I could find,.,-77.0438542,3a,75y,191.29h,74.26t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sFh34OUsz43GDN6I1z-iVEg!2e0

The steeple on St Marys was a big clue. The Google picture shows that the window frames on the 2nd story haven’t changed since then. Also cool contrast with the trees in the current day pictures. Really cool.
