21 Strangely Enchanting Grocery Store Photos from the Old Days

You won’t find a self checkout at these grocery stores, same as you won’t find many people paying for their groceries by check these days either. It was a different time when check stands had no scanners, meat counter men wore folded hats, and massive displays of fairly ordinary products lined the aisles.
