The Evans Grinding Co. at Swiss Avenue as it appears today.
This building once housed Hargrave’s Café where Bonnie worked.
An incredible original concrete sidewalk marking.. thought to be from the time of Bonnie & Clyde, located just
outside what was Hargrave’s Café. Bonnie may have walked to and from work on this very spot, all those years ago.
Hargrave’s Café building (rear)
It’s said Bonnie would pass through these doors at lunch time, to take the orders of Chinese
laundry workers, and then bring their lunches to them... since they never stopped working for long!!
Close up of Hargrave’s bathroom window. Note the bricks having been replaced,
as a result of people having walked away with small pieces of B&C history.
