The APHS has a lot of photos of different store locations.
Unfortunately, most of these store pictures were given to the
Society with no notes. Because of this, we are unaware of the
locations of these stores. However, there may be some documented
photos of A&Ps in the Michigan area in private hands. I'll ask some
of the people I know and you may get lucky with your request here.
As for outside pictures of old A&Ps, it would be appreciated if you
could get some photographs and post them here with information as to
what locations they are.
If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
