Crawfords Market in El Monte

Stumbled across this site about the old Crawfords Market, which started in Bell, and then had a big store in El Monte at 5 points, near "The Mall" which isn't what we call a mall today.

Crawfords Village Market in El Monte

There was a mall called Crawfords Corner in Alhambra, and it was where the 168 Market is today. In fact, a Google search indicates that it's still called that in some databases, because it shows up.

The Crawfords eventually became a Market Basket. Then it was a Safeway or a Vons for a long time. Then it finally became the 168.

I think the mall at Whittier and Montebello was called Crawfords Square, and there was a Crawfords there too.
