When I was a kid in Walla Walla, no bike ride downtown was complete without a visit to The Book Nook. The picture of the Book Nook Building shared here is from the 1920's, but the building is pretty much the same. Upstairs was KTEL-AM, the first radio station to actually PAY ME to play the hits. I got $1.25 an hour, and I was worth it.
I didn't care for it, but when it became The Modern Care (Chinese) I LOVED IT. Then the Modern moved to Eastgate, and Pepe's Pizza took over the location. They Pepe's moved to Eastgate. I loved Pepe's. It's gone now. The company that made their incredible pizza crust was bought out by some big company and then put out of business.
