The Quarter, with apologies.

A Quarter scene

After pouring concrete slab at Saber’s Market, late 70’s -early 80’s. From left, John Saber and son, William Acee, Mike Mettler, Bruce Webster. This open air addition was eventually enclosed and remains at Skip’s Market. The early diesel Rabbit is Bill’s.
The Cotton Mill*  chimney still stands in the background in this photo. I’m guessing it was 150′ high. I witnessed its demolition later, when one fellow climbed up to the top, straddled the rim, and knocked off one block at a time as he scootched around and round and slowly down. I have no idea who he was, but I’ll bet he made a couple hundred bucks.

*Known all through my youth as the “Knitting Mill”.

Photograph by Acee, with a timer from across Rte. 12…sorry Bill, not a real good scan of this.

I’ll try in the future to do more of my editing before posting, and try to put up decent efforts on the first post.

  1. So when did they tear down that beautiful roof work, and why?


  2. This addition remains, but outer walls have been added, and it’s now interior space. The road is much busier nowadays, so this keeps the road grime off the veggies, and even with this addition it’s a very small store inside.
