Vintage Delight

I believe I yelled, "Stop the car!" when I saw this building.  There was no way that I was going to allow this vintage charmer to escape my camera lens.  Don't you just love it?

Now I just need to dig up some history on it.  The inside is quintessential 1940s and 1950s, maybe as far back as the 20s or 30s.  I don't know.  It'd sure help if I had my Mom with me on trips like this because I could ask her when she was growing up if the places were similar.

I know it reminds me of one of the rare Woolworth's lunch counters I glimpsed that amazingly still existed when I was a very little girl in the 1960s.  I can still see that counter in my mind's eye to this day.

Central Dairy is located in Jefferson City, MO.


  1. That is so cool! We too had a Woolworths and also a Walgreens with lunch counters. I was more enthralled with the Woolworths because they were a five and dime, had more interesting stuff and a wood floor. When I moved to Live Oak, FL in the 80s, they still had a Rexall Drug store with a counter that drew the same group of "regulars" every morning for breakfast.
    Beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing it and reminding me of some happy memories.

  2. I remember the old Woolworths that had a lunch counter in Columbia MO. My mother and I used to go shopping once in a while there and we often ate lunch there! Happy memories!
