More “Souvenir Of First Monday Trade Day” PicturesPosted by penny
I have had so many people comment on the pictures that I shared with your from the First Monday Book, A Souvenir of First Monday Trade Day (last week), that I decided to go ahead and share the rest of them with you. From what I have been told, this book is “hard to come by” if you do not already have one. I think there were limited copies made and those that were lucky to get one in the 70′s – need to be holding on to it. I have also been told that people are willing to give $25 for one of them. So if you have one that you do not mind letting go of, let me know at email@example.com.
Again, I will share a few words that were written with each picture in the book.
Mr. J.C. Jacobs, Executive Vice President and Mr. Jep Moody, Vice President and Cashier of J.C. Jacobs Banking Company. (I have to just laugh at this picture…. When I think of Jep, I think of the landscaping and the wonderful shrubs at the present Regions Bank. He always made sure that the bank was perfect inside and outside. I think Jep looks like John Maples here. Ha!)
Mr. E.R. Hembree, Jr., Hembree Insurance & Real Estate. Most people remember him as “Eddie Ray”. He was involved in numerous civic clubs as well as President of the Chamber of Commerce. Goose Pond Civic Center was one of his “babies”. He was known in her “early days” to having one of the coolest Yellow 36 Ford Convertible.
Dr. Herbert glass, Pharmacist, H&H Pharmacy and also Recreation Commissioner, City of Scottsboro. (What exactly is a Recreation Commissioner? If you can help me with that, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Mr. Tom Roney, Manager of General Telephone Company in Scottsboro, Alabama. (GTE) (I am pretty sure that these phone lines were MUCH different and LARGER than the ones that we have these days. )
Some of The Daily Sentinel Crew…Tom Underwood, Tommy Kennamer, Marvin Helms, Jerry Hall and Joyce Johnson. (Remember there was lots of cutting, pasting and manual typewriters back them. No computers or programs to produce the paper like these days.)
Mr. W. G. Dean, Principal at Caldwell Elementary School. (I remember Mr. Dean- he was my first principal at Caldwell School. My mom worked for him to as the secretary. I can still see him today with those glasses on and a big smile on his face.)
Honorable R.I. Gentry, Judge of Probate- Jackson County, Alabama. He was the only Probate Judge in Jackson County to be elected three times in a row. Before he ran for Judge, he was the local horse doctor. He never missed a First Monday and bought all kinds of junk. He had a love for old clocks. (I can only imagine how many homes have some of Judge Gentry’s “treasures in them. He had an “eye” for amazing pieces of furniture….)
Mr. Charles Hodges, Local “Drug Pusher”. Ha! (that was the words from the book) Word was that he and Mr. R.L. Hodges had the worst coffee in the world.
Mr. R.L. Hodges (known as Levi), Local drug Pusher (again what the book stated. Ha!) Really, these two Hodges brothers were pharmacist and you could find them at H&H Pharmacy on Parks Avenue. I have heard that they were always “cutting up” with everyone and were two entertaining brothers.
This would be the Sumner Family. Christine with he husband Bill and their two children, John and Ann. Thanks Christine for the effort, time and creativity that was put into this book that you authored almost 40 years ago.
Above is a photo that was taken of the Cloverdale Staff.
Cloverdale Manor is celebrating National Nursing Home Week. Each day they have celebrated a different decade that would have been significant to our residents. Wednesday was the 70′s and the Cloverdale staff and residents enjoyed getting to dress up and enjoy activities that are related to that era. This is something they look forward to every year because the staff and residents enjoy the festivities so much.
This is just one of the many reasons that I believe Cloverdale is a great place. They are continuously trying (and succeeding) to make their facility a fun place for their residents to reside and their employees to work.
I hate to hear that someone has had to go to get an MRI but I also like to hear when they tell how wonderful their experience was while getting the scan at Open MRI of Scottsboro. I have always said that I cannot put my “name” on any thing, service or place if I do not feel extremely comfortable and confident with them…The same goes with Open MRI of Scottsboro too.
Remember, you have a choice in where you can go for an MRI and all you have to do is ask your Doctor to refer you to Open MRI of Scottsboro. They will take all ages when it comes to patients too- so if you have a small child- they are going to make sure that it is as easy as possible when the visit is taking place.
It is finally getting summer time and that means that all the kids need a few nice outfits. The Toad Stool has the best children’s selection too. You cannot go wrong with their clothes, accessories, shoes, gifts, etc. These are just a few of what you have to choose from too.
Every child’s closets must have a nice white shirt, blouse, sweater, bloomers and slip. The Toad Stool knows that all too well and that is why they have all of those goods. These are “necessities” in my book but are sometimes some of the most difficult items to find…Not now, that you know that The Toad Stool has all of them ready for you at any time- all year long!
If you ask someone who is a Margarita’s Mexican Grill “Fan”, I am pretty sure that they will tell you that one of their favorite things about this place is their Lunch Buffet. This Buffet has anything Mexican that you can think of…Victor and his crewcan even add a little “Mexican” to potatoes and boneless hot wings. Ha! This buffet is continuously “restocked” and the food is always hot and fresh and that is one of the reasons that you usually have to make Trip #2 to it.
I have told you before how much I love the fruit at Margarita’s Mexican Grill. The pineapple, oranges and mango are my favorite right now. What I have not told you about are the Cinnamon Chips and Donuts for dessert. All I can say, is that they are a “Must Try” and then you can get mad at yourself later for wanting them each time you go there. There is nothing frozen or store-bought about these either. These are home-made and you can tell when you bite into them. So, if you are just wanting a little snack- Margarita’s can take care of that “want” too. Ha! Remember, you can eat in at Margarita’s or you can do “take-out” –no matter what you choose, it is ALWAYS GOOD!!!
Until tomorrow….(It is almost the weekend!! Yay!!)
