From Whence Most of Those Linen Postcards Came!

Many of the linen penny postcards that appear on this site were purchased by Whitworth students who frequented Hoffman Brothers.  In addition to postcards and cigars, the store provided school supplies for the students.

A big thank you to Bettie Hatcher Cox and Deenie Tallant for their combined efforts of providing and scanning this piece of history from a commemorative Brookhaven newspaper.

  1. Loved Hoffman's When I remember it, I see a Wurlitzer Nickelodeon with multicolored lights turning facing you as you entered and a soda fountain on the right. It was the drug store closest to us and the one we used most. Though from the station, we would go to Pope's or Walley Field's.
