Hi all!

I'm desperately looking for photos of the aforementioned areas. Specifically the Old Hickory Mall interior in the 80s before the remodel (when Woolworth's was still there as well as Walgreens and the like), the old Woolworth's building downtown (interiors especially) and drive-ins. Especially the old one out on Highway 70 across from Jackson State.

I have been to the Old Hickory Mall office and they say they have photos, but they won't let me look through them as they say it's, basically, wasting their time. I found one book in the library that had some older photos, but not much in the way of what I was looking for. I've posted on Craigslist, done Flickr searches by location and contacted some webmasters of defunct websites by email with no luck. I found a commemorative paper from the 70s that had a couple of photos, but they were grainy and not much detail. Still, even if I could more of those, I would be happy.

I know that there are pictures out there. There must be. Anyone have any ideas?

Another oddity I'm looking for photos of was a large milk carton - I believe Dean's Foods - that was on Hwy 45 toward Henderson.

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only help?

I remember all of those things!

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures. Isn't it funny how the places we go regularly seem insignificant until they're gone? So insignificant that we don't even think to stop and take pictures every now and again.

Best wishes.

Kelly, I remember those things, too. I don't have a picture in that time frame readily available, but my uncle was Nando Jones who had the dry goods store down the street. Also Norwood Jones, one o the originators of the old Country Store is my uncle. The Store started out on Airport Rd and now is off 45 bypass. The store has a lot of Jackson Memoribilia i believe. "The Store" has a lot of pictures that have been given to them over the years, like pictures of the Jackson High graduation class back in the 50s that hang in the restaurant. You mighty call and talk to the current Manager (not sure if it is Lawrence Taylor anymore) Norma Taylor is the Historian of hte Casey Jones Museum and she might be able to help you.

Coincidentally, I got a picture of an old menu from Woolworth's in email yesterday!!! IF you send me a direct reply with your email I will send it to you. Pretty Cool!!

Also, I know that the Madison county library has a few pictorals.

One other option...have you tried the Jackson Sun archives?? In doing genealogy i have found newspapers to be a gold mine. And they do have the original pictures somewhere.
