Old Memories


This is a winter day in my home town of Durham, NC that I would guess the time in the early 1960’s. Obviously good times….the kids have new bicycles and good clothes, the store is a hub of commerce.

One kid’s wagon is in front of the mail box. I too used to have a red Flexible Flyer wagon.

The sign that has Long Meadow Milk was a very familiar brand back then. We called these stores “cow stores”.

The curbs on the street are granite rock. Much of Durham had granite curbing.

That is a great photo. We have one of those trucks - it is great! We use it to carry all sorts of stuff.
