We have a new Grocery Store in Tampico located where Elmendorf's Meat Market was on the East side of Main Street.Can anyone furnish the Poston's with pictures of the Store as it was in the early 1900's or give them some details of the family and what some of the items were on the shelves. It would be appreciated.

We have pictures of the exterior ca. 1920 when they were doing some renovating of the buildings. We also have interiors of grocery stores, but I don't know which ones. Perhaps Ethel would know by the file # she assigns to them. I'll check when I am at the historical society. I'm sure we can find something. Butch wants pics of his restaurant as well.
