500 Ft. Free Parking Space
Before there was market building in Salem people were compelled to drive their cars from block
to block and from one street to another looking for a place to park. Often they were compelled to
park three or four blocks from where they wanted to shop. After this ordeal of bumping fenders and
bucking traffic they would. do their shopping and lug their purchases back to the car, and if it was
their lucky day they would find their car about as they left it except one overtime parking tag and
a few bent fenders. But now they drive right up to the very door of The Market where there is
always plenty of room for everyone. And 'tis said by thousands that at the Market things cost less,
