DESCRIPTION   Interior view of IGA Grocery (International Grocer's Association), located across from Beynon's shop, in Corpus Christi, Texas. A man in a white apron and cap stands behind a check-out counter in front of a large calculating machine with tape. Two additional men in business attire stand to the right. The man in the center holds a cigar between his fingers. A woman can be seen in the rear of the store. This store sold Nestlé, Nueces, and IGA coffee, Wrigley's gum for 5¢, Lillian Russell cigars, Imperial sugar, Baby Ruth candy bars, and Fair-Maid sliced bread. A poster on the wooden bin holding loaves of French bread advertises oyster stew made with Borden's milk.
