Commenter Justin pointed out this old style, stepped facade roof, grocery on Gregg Street just down the hill from Gervais. I believe I have rendered the names correctly -- Gregg Street Groceries obviously came after, and overwrote, M. H. Baxley's Groceries. This sort of neighboorhood grocery used to be pretty common, but has now been mostly replaced with convenience stores on the one hand and supermarkets on the other. Now, the Five Points Food Lion is very convenient to this location by car, but back in the day, it would have been a long walk to Eden's.

(Hat tip to commenter Justin)
