O St. Market 1987. Picture retrieved from Google Images

I also found the picture below in Google Images just like in my fourth digital archive, which was taken the day when the famous shooting occurred where a child was killed. I like how this picture shows how the employees were ready to work and it also shows kind of how it was every day in the market. But sadly the event counter effect this picture.

Giant Supermarket Day. Picture taken by Isabel C. Polo 2017

This picture is similar to my second digital archive, but I chose to include this picture as part of my digital archives because it is day time, one could better appreciate the details on the ceiling, the columns, and also the workers in their environment. I find this picture to be interesting because it could be before opening hours and it shows these two men are preparing the store for customers. In the far end there are some rays of light coming from the ceiling, which looks interesting and also to the right of the picture one can see the “O St. Market” sign.

Giant Supermarket. Picture taken by Isabel C. Polo 2017

In the picture one can see how the O street market is right now. If one looks closely, one could observe how the ceiling is not new, therefore, meaning that this building has restored and preserved making it more important in our history. Also to the left some of the columns are made out brick, I suppose this was intended to stay the same as before. This picture is interesting because the architecture has a mixture of modern and gothic architecture.

Finally, a picture inside the building here one can see the supermarket from the inside, the connection between both buildings, meaning that in the top there is a glass and that is what connects the gray part and the red brick building, and the O st. Market banner, which is a replica of the original. I think it is captivating how Giant decided to have that sign inside the store and it is in the exact place where the red brick building starts. If one looks closely, one notices the bricks on the ceiling and in the sides (I couldn’t capture more brick columns in this picture, but there where like 5 more).
