I agree, these are beautiful pictures. I only wish that we still had the same beauty in the town that I grew up in. Even the hospital I was born in was torn down a few years after I was born.

Oh yeah, I would've loved to see that old time Krogers that's in the picture.

We came to Mayfield two or three times a year to visit my grandparents. I remember when it was bustling town, lots of local stores before the big box folks came to town, and when there was lots of work to be had. It is sort of sad to see that now the highways are constructed, it seem that the world has started to pass Mayfield by. I understand that a lot of the industry is going or gone, too?

The pic on the west side with Lookofsky's and the Glady's Shop are memorable. I wonder if the store on the north end is J.J. Newberry's.

The one thing I do remember, one of the very small buildings in the middle of that pic, is Watson's Pool Hall. I would almost kill for some of those burgers again. Gosh, they were good. Do you remember those? We would go to the window and order a sack full of burgers. Also, I remember a man that sold hot tamales on the street corners.

Mayfield has changed a lot from then to now. The nice stores on the square no longer exist and Wal Mart and Lowes are the 2 main chain stores. It's really sad. I still miss K-Mart.
