In the 1800s the combination of the spinning wheel and loom was used to make cloth for clothing and rugs. All by hand.

Well, you're not alone - guess what I learned to type on? In fact, when I was a junior in high school, the school bought a single electric typewriter (the first; all others were manual) and I got to use it. Just love stores like this - terrific capture, Denny!

We had a store like that out here in the middle of no where years ago. It was called Johnson City, it may still be on some old MO maps. One store that burned in Oct '69. I remember going there smelling feed, and many other smells of a country store. Thanks for the memories Denny

Cool scene and capture, Denny!! I actually save a few items here and there in hopes someone a hundred years from now can enjoy them...or else make some money off them before I croak...
