1987 Spokane Indians at the mall - Pedro Aquino

Pedro Aquino, better known as Pedro Martinez or Pedro A. Martinez, pitched for the Padres, Astros, Mets and Reds from 1993 to 1997. In 122 games he went 7-4 with 3 saves and a 3.97 ERA.

J.J. Newberry was a national chain of discount department stores based out of Pennsylvania, that was in business from 1911 to 1997. They had one in the Green Acres Mall on Long Island. The Newberry sign is still visible from the roof, but unfortunately unless you can get up on the roof you can't see it - would make a great wallet card photo if I ever got access. The University City location in Spokane closed in 1995.

  1. Newberry's was THE department store to go to in Owego, N.Y., when I was a kid. Walmart and the like put an end to them. I think my grandmother and dad went into mourning when that Newberry's closed.
