I didn’t think about it possibly being a jewelry store…a definite possibility! I’m still surprised that a local historian hasn’t chimed in to let us know about the Lewis store. Maybe one day!]]>
I stumbled across the image of this great postcard while doing a Google image search for pottery postcards. I collect postcards showing pottery and tableware for sale and have seen similar post cards but never with a TV lamp. The postcards in my collection which are almost identical except for the item being given away free are from jewelry stores that sold on credit. Hope this helps.]]>
I hadn’t thought about the Lewis & Clark thing! (sort of like everything in Texas being named “Alamo”) Hopefully someone that grew up there in the ’50s or ’60s will know the scoop and enlighten us.]]>
There’s a Lewis & Company of Kentucky Inc located near this address in the Starks Building. A sky scraper which along with attendant parking garages have changed the landscape completely in Louisville, KY. They are listed as a “Food Broker” ??
Couldn’t find anything further but then considering the local history regarding Lewis & Clark just about every other business is name Lewis.
Maybe someone local knows the real story….]]>
