Watching TV Through Store Window in 50’s

I remember at about the age of eight or nine looking through the storefront window of Jimmy Walker’s Appliance Store on Main Street in Pineville to watch television at night.

A thermometer with the Jimmy Walker name on it at Alexandria Retrospective website reminded me of this plus this page has a plethora of photos that will bring memories flooding back to those who remember these days.

One commenter has a long list of some of their memories of living in Alexandria which is very interesting plus the whole page will revive the memories of those who lived or drove across the bridge to Alexandria during this time period.

The comments are from 2006 but that doesn’t matter since what matters are the memories they evoke.

There are many mentions of Fuzzy’s, Lazarone’s and Lou and Laura’s. This is just one page of many at the Alexandria Retrospective website.

A visitor to the site could literally spends hours reliving the good old days before life got so complicated.
