201 Wyoming Lot No. 373-Amaya Food Market

Description:

Photographs of the Amaya Food Market, located at 201 Wyoming Street, San Antonio. The store looks like it was converted from a house. In the top photograph there is a store sign at the corner of the street. Two boys are at the corner, one on a bicycle and the other in a go-cart. The name of the store is also painted on the side of the building but it is partially obscured in the top photo by a small tree. It can be seen better in the lower photograph. Above the store name the head of a cow is painted on the side of the building. Below the store name is a large advertisement painted on the building. It says "Drink Big Red, Distinctive Flavor". There are a lot of trees behind the store building. A third photograph is torn and shows entrance to the store. The store is located in an area that was redeveloped because of HemisFair '68.
