From the Barefoot Files...

In this photo is my great grandfather's grandfather. They were both named Sam. This Sam ran a store. You can see from the photo that he must have received a shipment of bananas recently. Knowing how quickly bananas ripen and turn brown. It seems a logical idea would be to hang them up at the store to alert the public, "yes, we have bananas!" There is also an Ivory Soap sign below the window on the left.

Photos like these -- from generations ago -- showing the lifestyle -- are very interesting to me.
