Up from the Ashes ...

From the John Holly Williams Collection, LLF Library
And the windows are dressed for Christmas.  This photo has to been from the late 1960s. Followers of this blog will know I have previously featured photos of the fire that burned down Woolworth's and the neighboring five and dime, Morgan and Lindsey's, on Cherokee Street.  The cause of that fire was believed to have been a faulty heater in the rear of M&L.

This is the first photo of the replacement store that I have seen in the library's online collection.   

Morgan and Lindsey did not rebuild.  I am unclear when Woolworth shuttered this store, but this building is still standing and is home to, I believe, a women's fashion business.

  1. I believe Woolworth's was open until the mid-to-late 1980s.
