"The 5 and Dime"

 

Artist: James Geddes

I call this “5 & Dime” because my mom and dad always
referred to Rasco’s as the 5 and dime. I hadn’t realized that
the buildings up in the business district are as ornate as they are until I started
studying them as I drew. The businesses have changed several times.
I distinctly remember the Bakery and the two ladies that greeted us
when we ordered a special birthday cake or mom’s favorite,
cream puffs! Auburn Drug became Reeve’s and now some other.

The 5 and dime has sheeting across the windows. This was a practice back
then, when the storefront was changed and new window dressings
were anticipated as customers walked past. More than a few times we
would double back to see the latest and greatest the shop had to offer
!
