Alan Jackson was singing “Remember When?” and I wondered if you remember when.

Do you remember when Ray Allen had a cleaning and pressing shop up near John Fort’s News Stand on Main Street (front street)?

Remember when a man dipped the ice cream cones in the back of Fort’s News Stand?

Or when Luke Garland had his jewelry store near Mrs. Molly David’s shop? And do you remember the lovely hats Mrs. David had in her shop.

Have you forgotten Service Grocery that was owned by Mr. Walter McCoy and Mr. Ellis Wood? Lots of young people, especially boys worked there in
