The front of the building
Our beloved Neon Sign, so glad it is still there...
On the left of the show was a Jewelery store it, was in Business for over 60 yrs, I went to school with the owner's Son..if you bought Jewelery in Brookhaven, you bought it there. Mr. Gene was in a wheel chair and when he was unable to operate it any longer it closed it's door. I think in the 70s, it was a Merle Norman's Make up store for awhile. Then a Singer Sewing Machine Store, now it sits empty like so many stores in Small town USA. On the right side was TJ Maxwell's Shoe Store can't remember when it wasn't there, until the old man died and his Son wanted no part of it. It too closed in the 80s, I believe. Several businesses have been in and out of it..nothing there right now.
I really like that they used the same glass blocks that where there to start with. I have bought so many tickets from that window..
The same doors I walked in and out of, for years...Dean and I often stood at the little window on the left and watched Mr Gene work on Jewelery and daydream about owning the beautiful pieces..lol..she never out grow her love for Jewelry, but I did.
OK, now to be honest, I didn't take this last picture it was on a Brookhaven Website, but I loved the look of the sign at night.
