This 1958 photograph provides a view of Country Club Centre at Watt Avenue and El Camino Boulevard. Opening in August 1952 by way of the theater designs of Joseph Blumenfeld, it soon occurred to him that the northern county's burgeoning population would be better served by a shopping center. The development swelled to 66 units by 1958, and 72 by 1960. Clearly shown are the store fronts of Lucky at 3480 El Camino Avenue, Walgreen's Drug Company at 3460 El Camino Avenue, Emigh Hardware at 3450 El Camino Avenue, and W.T. Grant Department Store at 3444 El Camino Avenue.
