I do. I remember when the only way to get to Jonesboro was to go through town and come out at the White Way Inn. That is if you came from the north side.

Does anyone know where the big town of LIGHT is? Back in the 40s and 50s before the 1956 fire there the town of Light boosted a theater, 3 grocery stores, 2 cotton gins, a cafe, and numerous houses. It was a happening place then. Lol. I have heard my siblings speak of people walking in groups for miles around to go to the movie there then they could go to Mrs, Huston's Cafe next door for a hamburger or to Jones' store for a hamburger and milkshake and listen to the jute box play the latest records.

I forgot to mention the pinball machines at Jones' store where kids would gather around and cheer each other on and I'm sure bet on the games. Good memories. This was at Light.

There was also a boarding house across from Jones's store in Light. It was a long white house that was later turned into apartments.

Remember when 49 to Jonesboro was 2 lanes? You would get behind a slow driver, couldn't pass and running late for class at ASU.

I bet it wasn't really a boarding house. Every town had one of these.

Well, you may be right but when I lived there in the 50s it was rented out to families lol.

When all the banks in town closed at 2 pm and they closed, I think, on Thursday all day. This is where the term " bankers' hours" came from.
