  • Thanks David, I love those photos from a time gone by. I very well remember when Morton had this Service Station.

  • David,

    Thanks for the picture of the service station of Dad's. It brings back alot of memories. Your blogs are always interesting but I especially like them when you bring back pictures and articles of the past. Keep up the good work. It is very appreciated, and I will look forward to seeing more of the same.

  • jaxspike, we actually have a Bedford County Bicentennial history book on sale in our front office. It's full of photos from the past and is a good read.

  • Yeah, I liked this blog too.

    When I was a kid, my parents had a "book" put out by this newspaper I believe, of times past and a BIG flood. I looked at that book till it tore up. It was a big book out of newsprint. The "old" size, which was bigger. Soft-bound.

    jaxspike, you may find them in the History Room of the local library. Free looking, anyway.

  • This picture is really fun. I actually spent a good part of yesterday at the library in Lynchburg looking at their newspaper archives (starting in 1974) for my paper. It was really fun seeing all the old movie and clothing ads and to see how so many things have changed.
