Alas, some things DO change!

Last year on November 4th I posted this photo of a well-known fruit stand with the headline, "Some Things Never Change." And here is my caption from that posting just one year ago:

This fruit stand on Speedway and 6th Avenue looks like it has been around since before electricity came to Tucson! For part of the year it's all boarded up and looks quite abandoned and I think it has closed forever. Then, it pops open again and sells pumpkins, apple cider, peanuts, honey, and local candies. I don't know if it actually has a name other than "that fruit stand on 6th." It certainly has a rustic charm, though!!

And now the Fruit Land market is gone! Here's the article link.  When I launched this site five years ago I never dreamed it would become a bit of a Tucson historical archive.

  1. Always a good idea to photograph buildings. You never know when they will be gone.
