La Familia Nava/Garcia

These photographs were taken in the late 60’s and early 70’s.  La Potosina was a family owned business on 18th & Allport.  It was one of the first Mexican grocers in the neighborhood.

Fun fact: The restaurant portion of the business once hosted Cesar Chavez and a group of workers for a meal.

Appearing behind the butcher counter are Jose Santos Nava (left) and son-in-law Heriberto L. Garcia (right). They both have passed.
