Reader (IP Address: 188.8.131.52) Comment: Oh my, this is the first picture I've ever actually seen, but my grandmother (Sallie D. Hairston) worked here for years. I can't count the stories she told us of Jobbers.
My Mother, Elizabeth Hairston worked there, also. Karren Campbell; EMAIL: email@example.com
