Photo of The Month – Apr 2009
Cliffside Mills Store
Picture contributor: Anthony Scruggs
This photo was made sometime after the building’s expansion, probably around 1914 or so.
The left half of the building held a drug store, and, to its right, what appears to be a Ford agency. The right half of the building was the Cliffside Mills Store. Only the store has a concrete sidewalk. The drug store and the Ford agency has dirt right up to their doors. (Wipe your feet.)
Anthony Scruggs found this photo postcard on eBay (and paid quite a sum for it). Our thanks for sharing. Below is the back of the card, and blowups of the signs mounted along the front of the building.
