I was looking at the blogging tour and realized that some of the photos I am showing are taken shortly after we acquired the building. There is alot of clutter and disorganization about. From the front door of the company store as you enter the building this picture would have looked like the store in the early 30's. This counter would have been in the center front of the store and the gentleman in the right rear corner would have been standing about where the end of the counter is in tour 7 photo. On the back wall of this photo is where our post office was for the coal camp community of Whipple. If this picture appears small it is because it is a photo of the glen jean store. 4 stores were built in this fashion and Whipple was the largest. To date there has never been a located photo of the inside our our store. This of Glen jean is the best we got. But it is a very good likeness. and would have been similar in set up. This store burned in 34.
this was the second store built on the same site in Glen Jean. Collins also had one built in the coal camp town of Prudence and of course Whipple making this building structure 4 all together.
