Well done. Excellent coverage. What a host of memories this book evoked!! I grew up in Vincennes during these years. When I told my son about the book, he immediately ordered one for him and one for his sister. I have gone through the book and written notes for them regarding each photo that had special meaning for me.

I was disappointed that Smith Hardware (now Beard's) was not mentioned or pictured--even though it was across the street from Clean Towel Service, page 12. I worked in Smith's office summers during my high school years.
