  • Bet this picture will jog a lot of memories for the "Rubber Mill" gang. My husband is now 71 years old and still talks about Sam Moore's Store.

  • Growing up in the 1940's and 50's Double Cola was my favorite...I finally found it in Florida in the 70's at a "No-Name" convenience store...I have seldom seen it since in my travels around the Southeast...The factory is still in business in Chattanooga and I've often wondered why it was never promoted nationally what with the success of Coke and Pepsi...

  • I remember the store also and I remember going to church (Shelbyville Mills Baptist) with Mr. Sam, his wife,son,and his sister-in-law. It does jog memories for sure and miss those good ole days and feel sorry for the people who never knew what it was like!
