Liquor Establishments

Commercial Place does not lack for places to get your spirits. You can start off at B.A. Williams & Co. Wines and Liquors on the left hand side of the street. If they don't have what you're looking for, you simple cross the street to Legun Distilling Co. Wines & Liquors. Nothing there either? Try next door at White Bros. Liquors.

Before Jimmy Hoffa

Real life teamsters awaiting their loads. Henry Ford had not made much of an inroad judging from this and the previous photo of Norfolk.

Coke and Pepsi sign placement

I'd spot the Coca-Cola sign and walk down to Murray's Lunch. Once inside, I'd look up and say "Gimme a Pepsi please."

Uneeda Bargain

That nickel bought a box of them.

You know what?

I do NEED A biscuit! For 5 cents you can't go wrong.

It'll go well with my Coke.
