Curb Service and, YEP, Neon TOO!

Location still unknown, but the food was savored by those who were about five or six years old in roughly 1948 or 1949. A "slot machine" was on premises and was used with great delight by said pre-schooler, who enjoyed eating here with her grandfather and grandmother. 
Note the neon light about even with the white skirt in the dark of this photo:  it says Travis on enlargement.  This would make the location near Janie's present day location.  This accident occurred at the end of the 1940s. 
Note the Travis Cafe sign just north of Lofton's.  Date unclear, but note cars and the arrival of Bane Drugs, probably in the early 50s.

Someone with  a sense of history needs to ride to the rescue and explain the different locations/dates of the Travis.
