“Images” from the past...

Members of the Blakely Concert Band ride a mule-drawn wagon around unpaved Court Square around the turn of the century heralding the opening of Underwood’s Big Furniture Store, on South Main Street. The photograph was taken looking up North Main Street. The brick building on the left was formerly Hall Drug

Co., on the west corner. The wooden structure on the right is situated approximately where the old First State Bank building was constructed. Note the hanging street lamp, visible just above the tree.
