ads from '52

An old print ad for Peebles.

Geo. Delk is no stranger either.

If memory serves, Bett's later became a Southern department store (which later became a Peebles).

One can find a Smithfield Farmers sticker here.

The face of the independent phone company back then.

I recall a very cool old neon sign at the Virginia Kernel. So far this ad's all I've found of the now long gone establishment.

All the above are more hasty photos, these being of ads in a program for Surry County's tricentennial celebrated in October 1952.
