Old Hobb's store beside of the new Library? Cal's Pizza, Charlie's Sandwich Shop, Lumpkin's Barber shop, Nell's Dress Shop, Canady's, Knox County Supply, Old Theater, TG&Y, A&P, the post office use to be where the board of Ed is now. Barbourville utilities use to be where the police station is and the library was there too. Now I'm telling my age aren't I? I love to sit and recall those days. Messer's was also where the car lot is at the Wal-Mart Junction. Gosh, times have changed haven't they?? Anyone else remember anything they'd like to add??

The next time you are in the court house, stop by County Att. Office and ask for Ancil Hall and ask him for the link of knox County Ditigal Library. It has a lot of old pictures of Minton Farm, Old City Hall all schools built by WPA, Lynn Camp and Grays. You will love them. By the way your pictures are GREAT!!

I still think about the Oasis that was the BEST food of all times. Do you remember their french fries.

OK...you've got me on the J&B's Cafeteria. Unless it was the one over by the 5 and 10 store?
There was also one over by Nell's Dress Shop... what was it's name? I remember at one time it was run by a Hinkle Family. What was the name of the store in the corner where the Methodist Mountain Mission is located now?

One more..how about the "Cub" located at the corner of College St. and Manchester St.and run by "Old Man Foley" and Willie. They had the best hot dogs in the world.

J&Bs, at least I think that was the name, was located halfway down the small ally on the square to the right of Paul Baker's office is now. Also, at the other end of the ally was another resturant. J&B was always crowded and the food was awesome!. I ate at those places in 72-73. Don't know how long they were in business after that.
