"Well, I finally found the picture of Afton's Main Street I was telling you about. Also attached is a picture taken inside Bassett's Grocery. First, Afton's Main Street: The pickup in the picture was owned by Bassett's Grocery. I drove it delivering groceries from 1957 until 1959. I decided one day to park it on Main Street and take a picture of it. It is parked on North Main street just North of Farmer's State Bank. They tore all of the buildings down a few years later. The Drug Store in the picture was owned by Doctor Staples. It was open but I don't think anybody traded there. He NEVER changed the display in the front window and there was about a quarter inch of dust in it. The picture inside Bassett's Grocery was taken about 1955 and shows, left to right, Me, Tommy Lee Bassett, Oletha Bandy, Thomas Grover Bassett, Jr., Thomas Grover Bassett, Sr., Fay Johnson, and Jetti Miller."
I get so excited when I receive pictures like this, although it makes me sad that Bassett's Grocery is so recently closed. The fact that I know two people in the grocery photo (Tommy Lee and Perry) makes it even more fun. Thanks!
Awesome additions to your slide show :o)
Sure would be cool, Laurel, if you could find a truck similar to the one in the photo to park by your gas pumps.
Great photos, and yes, sad that Bassett's is no more. :(
It’s cool to see a picture of my great grandmother.
