American Country Stores ~ #7 In A Series



In February, 1937, Russell Lee and his camera were in Hovey, Indiana, recording everyday life for the Office Of War Information under the auspices of FDR's New Deal jobs plan. This picture shows Buchanan's General Store, still open after a flood that prompted the owner to move his furniture onto the store's roof.
