A hometown Life magazine picture taken in the summer of 1942 by legendary photographer Alfred Eisenstadt. Loehr Drug Store, Brown Shoe Store, and the St. George Hotel were still there when I grew up. The shoe store had a fluoroscope–later outlawed as being unsafe. The courthouse in the background looks the same today. Parking is less chaotic today. Traffic flows in a circle around the town square–which is to the right. This was along the first routing of US Hwy. 66.
