-MAIN STREET U.S.A.-

Modern Stores on Main Street,
Union, S. C.
I can remember McLellan's in my hometown, Bessemer, Alabama.  
It was a favorite 5 & Dime Store.  Packed full of Treasures.
As a very young child I remember looking through all the toy counters, with instructions of no touching of course.  
It was a place where you could share a bag of popcorn 
from the machine near the front door.  
I will never forget that buttery smell.

And to think it was a modern Store.
Many were gone by the late 50s due to a merger with McCrory.
