  • David: I played with this link a few minutes and it is very intriguing, to say the least. If I can find the time, I have a huge bunch of photos that would add to it.

    Meanwhile, I want to comment on the previous PTP. The only thing we know for sure about the grocery store photo is that it's from the 40's and is the Dennis and Sons grocery.

    The only thing I have from the 40's is the 1949 Shelbyville telephone directory. Would you believe that the yellow pages section listing grocery stores has 46 in Shelbyville. There is no Dennis & Sons listed, but it does list the United Super Market at 604 Madison, which we all know was operated by H.F. Dennis and his sons.

    If anyone has a phone directory from earlier in the 40's we might be able to pin it down, otherwise it's like hunting for a needle in a haystack!

  • David thanks for this site. I have already uploaded a few photos and plan to do some more as I have time to do so.

  • Grits, just a correction- please. Elizabeth Tittsworth was married to Floyd Dennis. Ruth Tittsworth was married to Deery Eakin. Dolly is married to Jack Jolly.

    Of the 11 Tittsworth siblings only: Lucille -Longview, TX- Dolly- Murfreesboro, and Anne- Rosewell, GA are still living.
