Change is inevitable. They probably weren't thinking of that in the 1930s when the A&P Supermarket occupied this North Seattle cross-section. But eventually, it became more well-known as a coffee shop and Chinese restaurant, amongst other things. And now, even that is changing, as the neighborhood warily prepares to watch this space turn into a pharmacy. Through it all, about the only thing that's stayed the same is that mailbox, which is still there. The question is…what cross-section are we looking at?
