The Original Borders Book Shop

Being a U. of M. alum (BSCE in 1981) I'll always remember the 303 S. State location (a little south of the State Theater)--small, quaint, a bit cluttered, just like a bookstore should be.

Couldn't find any good photos of this location (apparently even earlier, at its genesis, it occupied another location on State St.), so I'm putting up a rather recent photo of State St. Borders Book Shop, as it was called then, was, if memory serves, on the same side of the street as the theater.
