I went exploring in my hometown for a little over the weekend. I found a lot of interesting architectural bits on the old buildings. My favorite find, however, was this ghost sign from the old McCrory’s 5 & 10 store. I had never seen it before. The store is now long gone, but I remember it fairly vividly from my childhood.
Cool extra bit of information – my paternal Grandmother met my Grandfather while she worked at that store. It was shortly after he returned from World War II. She used to play records for him in the store. I don’t know all the details, but I know at one point he asked to walk her home after work one night and it caused quite the stink with her family. Oh times they have changed!
