The Red and White grocery store was in the next block.I always volunteered to go get whatever my aunt needed to make supper. The smell of coffee would hit you as you walked in the front door. To this day,I'm transported back in time when I smell coffee beans being ground.

Accross the street from the drug store and the 5 &10 was a great market. Every Christmas we got our tree from there. I remember my Dad saying .50 was to much for a tree. I spent $55 here in North Carolina last year.
That drug store and the one up on the corner of Hamilton and Homewood Ave. were my main places to buy perfume for my mom at Christmas.

Corner of Kelly and Homewood. As young boy's in the late 40's we used to "borrow" things from the store. Store had wooden floors that sagged and were very slippery when wet. Car in front of the store is a 1949 Ford Business Coupe. In 1955 while in the Marines I bought the same car from my dad and later sold it back to him when I bought a new 1958 Ford Convertible, my first new car. To bad Homewood looks like a war zone these day's.
