The Old Country Store in Gordonton, North Carolina

Great old photo from 1939 in Gordonton, North Carolina. We’re looking at an old country store on a Sunday afternoon.

July 1939. Gordonton, North Carolina. "Country store on dirt road. Sunday afternoon. Note kerosene pump on the right and the gasoline pump on the left. Rough, unfinished timber posts have been used as supports for porch roof. Negro men sitting on the porch. Brother of store owner stands in doorway."

A little Googling shows the building still standing today, which is just fascinating. Take a look at this image we found online.
