Tony Fisher, the neighborhood-minded owner of Fisher's Supermarket on Lincoln and Franklin, announced about a month ago that he'll be opening a new coffee shop in at 809 Franklin, the storefront adjacent to his current shop, this summer. The market will also be getting an overhaul to provide better service to what Fisher calls "the ever-changing neighborhood." Mazon's discount store, which had previously used the storefront to oversee their development (currently on hold) on the Eastern Parkway corner, will be relocating to the shop next to 95 South (last photo above).
For a great photo of the ever-changing neighborhood circa 1910, click here. The photographer is looking north down Franklin from Eastern Parkway, and in terms of structures, the street hasn't changed too much, though the trolley tracks are no more. Fisher's currently occupies the building on the far right (thanks to poster ATRollin for the image).
