44 Years Ago Today – December 27, 2016

peoplesdrug

Forty-four years ago today I moved to Richmond Va. My 1963 Valiant with the push button transmission was borrowed from my mother, and packed with all of my possessions. I remember getting off 95 at the Boulevard exit near Parker Field and traveled south passing diagonally parked cars down the middle of the street heading towards Broad Street.

I saw on the left the Peoples Drug Store with its all night lunch counter and right in front of me down 2 blocks the statue of Stonewall Jackson. At that point I had only begun to realize that I had not only just traveled the longest 100 miles in my life but had found a new home.
