Oooh, Oooh! What's Their 10-20?

From the C.W. Witbeck Collection at the MDAH Online Collection
Patrolmen Brewer and Underwood of Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol, District 9, Brookhaven, MS, 1949. 

I do believe this is Brown's Cafe, but if I'm wrong, please leave a comment here or on my Facebook page.  Thanks! 

Update: While there were more than one "cafe" in the South that looked like this during this era, assuming this caption means the photo was taken in Brookhaven, then the consensus is this is Brown's at Highway 51 and Union.

  1. I think you are right Molly. In the early 50s the road between Brown's and the DQ were well worn...our 2 favorite hanging places.
