This was downtown San José (Costa Rica) in the 70s. People walking while shopping quietly and there were not so many vehicles.
The white building on the left is the Gran Hotel de Costa Rica, the Libreria Lopez is now the Plaza de la Cultura.
This was before my arrival in Costa Rica. Was that a Sears store (on the right)?
