Back in the Day

Back in the day, downtown Selma's retail stores included Tissier Hardware,
 Boston Bargain Store, Barton's, Benderskys, Eagles and more.

This display of old Selma photographs was set up at the Walton Theatre 
during the recent Pilgrimage.

So much history! I love looking at photographs of the way things used to be.

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday. ☺

So much nostalgia. I think we've lost a lot with the coming of the Big Box stores and chain stores everywhere. I'll bet there isn't a corner in this country where you won't find a McDonald's or a Walmart!

I still prefer small, privately owned businesses and buy from them whenever possible. Miss bookstores especially.
