Itawambians Woodrow Dulaney, Carson Loden and Cecil Benson are captured in this photograph taken in the 1960s. The photo was shared by Ricky Beasley. I love the details that are found in the photograph: the neatly shelved merchandise, the gas heater and wood floors, the Burroughs adding machine or cash register, the black rotary dial telephone. Cecil's hand is holding a cigarette, and next to the telephone are a couple of boxes of Blue Ribbon cigars. I recognize the box because my granddad used to smoke the same brand, and my grandmother used the empty boxes to store various items. Click on the photo to make it bigger and see what you can spot.
Anyone recognize the store?
