A Rice Guide to Shopping in the Village, 1968

I’ve been too busy to think coherently about what to write this evening. Instead of trying to fake it I’ll  just offer this map of the Village. It appeared in the Thresher in September of 1968. I’m not positive but I don’t think any of these businesses still exist here:

Bonus: I’m not even going to think about this.

    The map left out Orange Julius (frequented after track workout), Alfred’s (where I had my first Reuben), Rodney’s, University Men a & Boys, Village Theater (which still showed 1st run movies), the Village Toy Store etc.

    I am rather surprised that Art Cinema was there then. It hung on until the early 80s before it turned into the original location of Cafe Chino.
