Digital Archives Exterior and Political 2: Elbo Market

 

Elbo Market located in the 1700 block of 7th street

The Elbo Market is one of the newer shops opened up within the 1700 block of the 7th street NW neighborhood. The Elbo Market was the previous location of John’s Place, a former local bar. The outer appearance of the building is simple. The overhead of the convenience store  is green with white letters which states the name of the store. There is a large sign outside on the outside of the window, which states “Now We Accept EBT”. This is a positive since the community is opening more low income housing complexes and this neighborhood is known for holding low income residents.
