It wasn't "long gone" - this aerial is from 1960. The building above is in the center.

It didn't last long into the '60s, however, as the 1964 view at Historic Aerials shows a completely different building on the site. It doesn't seem to change over the years, so it was probably the store seen in early GSV images like this one from 2009.


Even the 2012 image shows no sign of the store's demise, but by 2013 they were holding a groundbreaking ceremony for the current mixed-use development (you can see a picture on their Facebook page).


The Alhambra Public Library next door has also become a mixed-use development.
