It looks like the same driver of No. 1 in both pictures.

It looks like they updated the fleet over the years.

Grade school must have been tough for Harry Beaver.

I had a friend, now deceased, by the name of Dick Gay. I suspect it would be far worse today
(with the change of meaning), but still think ol' Dick got a few raised eyebrows when he told
people his name.

I went to school with Rusty Hammer. He died quite a few years ago. Way too young.
My dad often said that most of us do not get to choose their surname. Hopefully, at least one parent is wise enough to choose decent first and middle names.
Nice photos! Thanks all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The building is still there. The address is shown as 9 S. Spokane,



Hundred years later. You can see the window sills above the tops of the delivery trucks, awning at the corner.

They sure managed to ruin the esthetic value of that building by removing the cornice... And the 1913 fleet!

Terry,

I guess it was an attempt to "modernize" the building. The work left a slight ridge above the windows or it is more pronounced today.

The door to the back of the grocery store is behind the pickup and tree in the 2012 view.

This thread brings up a question for me. My now deceased old buddy had (it's still in the family)a '17 T with an after market wood bodied pickup that his Dad bought in '68. It had been kept in an old garage for many years and was in very good shape, but the engine had been removed. Fast forward to the early '80's. He got it out and started cleaning it up and found an engine for it. When he got the thick layer of dust washed off of it, we could see very dim lettering on the sides. It said "Andrews Market Maryville". After some checking, we found out that some of my relatives'(by marriage) father by the name of Andrews indeed had a market in Maryville. No pictures have been found, but it is no doubt the same family. Does anyone know how to find any more information and history on this? I know it's a long shot, but you never know. Many thanks. Dave

David, try the nearest historical society. And just keep asking those questions to every very old person you see about time, and I bet you'll get some answers. You might be amazed.
