It's incredible. There were a few like that still around when I was old enough to remember.
We had one like that down the street until the late 70s before it was bulldozed. We used to take our bikes and wagons to be welded for free by the old timer that worked there. He even patched out tires with the old gunpowder activated tube patches. Also, there was an old coke machine that gave us 10 cent ice cold sodas. Good times, good times.
Nothing good about those times.
No strip malls, no vinyl siding. Life was not worth living.
Please, make a note of it.
L. A. Currin Store. They had electricity, those pumps are electric models. The one small sign on the left is a telephone sign. The building is setting on posts - no foundation. Down south somewhere?

I would almost swear it looks like one i used to go to as a kid in Hartwell Ga.
