    Wow! Such a great image!!! Thanks for sharing it.

    Thanks. I can't take any credit for the image, but I thought it was worth sharing. This building is still standing but not in the best state of repair. Hopefully someone will save it.

    Such a great photo ! I guess in NC they smoked and drank a lot :-) all ads are for cigs and alcohol no food at this store . Love it !

    It's right in the heart of the world's tobacco capital at that time. Maybe they sold peanuts for the Coke. I don't know about this store, but some you could walk in and get yourself some nice non-taxable liquor.

    The visible Texaco gas pump is great too ! I think you could double post this into 2 categories including the Texaco pump :-) I would love to have gone to this store and sit on porch :-)

    Yep, seen it many times, it's all over ebay. You can buy a copy of this image for round $15. Great advertising image
