American Country Stores ~ #3 In A Series

This country store in Centerville, Arkansas had a makeshift lunch counter, shown above. The back of the store was a doctor's office, shown below, where medicines and cures were dispensed.

Marion Post Wolcott shot the pictures in May, 1940 for the Office of War Information.

One stop-shopping... it's not just a modern thing! ;o) What an extensive range of services those shops offered. These photos are steeped with history... Wonderful new series, Golden West! Happy Weekend ((HUGS))
