I shot this image last October, while out rambling around in South Alabama. I ended up in the little rural community of Burnt Corn in Monroe County and found several beautifully painted old buildings. I don’t remember Cokes being a nickel, but I do remember them being a dime when I was a child (boy, I hate to date myself like that). We lived in a small town and there was a store about half a mile from our home. I can remember one of my friends and me walking to the store in the afternoons, each with a dime to buy a coke. The big debate we always had was, which was the real dime, the one with Roosevelt on it or the one with Mercury. They were both a dime a dozen at that time (I can’t believe I’m resorting to cheap puns like that this early in the day).
At one time there was an old general store in Burnt Corn that had an unbelievable amount of old, hard to find items that are probably no longer made. Unfortunately, it closed about 5-10 years ago. I would have really liked to have gone to that closing sale, but missed it for some reason or other.
