Just Some More Winslow Grocery Store History

I purchased my second calendar plate from one of the many grocery stores that Winslow had nearly a hundred years ago.

There seemed to be a store every block or two.  Usually in someone’s home.

This one is a 1918 Calendar plate from S. Tary Cash Grocery in Winslow.  I think it is really gorgeous.  I do not know where this store was.

      I was thinking about that store, JoAnn. Ajac Richardson had it, then Claude Norrick. and also Doyle and Twiligah Russell ran it. I went to it several times with my Dad Cook and Grandma Cook.

    Thank you so much for the Grocery Store info. My ancestor William Ray Berlin lived in Winslow. In 1838 he was a Traveling Salesman working for the Piano Binders & Movers Company. In the early 1900s he owned and operated the Berlin Hotel in Winslow. He died in Winslow on 5 May 1923 and is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery. If you have any additional info on him please share.
