DESCRIPTION   Interior view of an M & M grocery store in Corpus Christi, Texas. A woman and child stand between two aisles of produce. On the other side of the middle aisle, next to the cash register, are five men, one of them in business attire. The man in the sweater jacket and hat is one of the Guy brothers, owners of this chain-store. M & M sold Nueces coffee, Fair-Maid bread, saltine flakes, Saxet soda wafer, and Sunshine Cheese Niblets. The meat counter is a separate room at the rear of the store. Note the bunches of bananas, the elaborate display of canned goods, and the radio behind the cash register.
