  • I have a lifelong streak of being wrong at least once a day, and this is the first opportunity I've had today to extend that streak. So I'll take a wild guess and say it looks to me like this building might be located on the south side of the former Cooper St., and the building on the north side would be the Nichols Furniture building.

  • Our old property records for Greenwood Avenue show this was O.A. Milner property for residential development. Also, the street was first named "Coble" and then changed to "Greenwood".

  • David, as for the grocery located at the corner of Evans and Madison. We built our house on Whitthorne in 1946 after my Dad got back from the war. In my remembrance Donnie Thompson's Dad had that grocery at that time and he lived in the house beside of it. A few years later Johnnie Walker was the proprietor of that grocery store. As for the houses lining both sides of the street I can remember Mr. Thompson being on the North side of Madison between Evans and Hoover. On the South side of Madison between Evans and the Madison Street school playground was Mr. Glynn Collier (circulation manager for T-G in the late 40s and early 50s) and a Vaughn family. Between Evans and Whitthorne I can not remember all of the families but some were: Pope, Thomas, McGee, Hodge, Dennis, with L. T. Bellar on one corner, and Haynes on the other corner at Whitthorne.
