  3. Drove by this one in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. The fish gets reeled in.

    It was out on the highway on a new building. Apparently the store was in downtown (beginning in 1947). At least they saved the sign.

    There just aren't enough combo sporting goods and liquor stores anymore.

    They built a new Dunkies here a couple of years ago. I'll just say modernity hasn't been an improvement in their architecture.

  7. Not sure what this business in Poplar Bluff, Missouri was. The other side is now a lawyer’s office (across from the courthouse).

  8. More hometown goodness. Foot long coneys are always available at DQ. Dig the Corvair pickup.

    Yes the neon sign, but also the woman (her hat) and the car - all Fedora Lounge perfect.

  13. Pics of the 1952 parade here in Springfield, Missouri as part of the world premiere of the motion picture "The Winning Team" with Ronald Reagan and Nancy Davis. This was in conjunction with the reunion of the 35th Division along with President Harry S. Truman. Neon seen here was for Cameron Electric Co. and our local Ford dealership
