A Photo Shoot Down Memory Lane

                   
Rogersville, Tennessee
Memory Lane 1950's Nostalgia Town
Behind Eldridge Auto Sales

Our photo club recently got the opportunity to visit this place. It was not open to the public-so we had complete access to all the places outside-to shoot to our hearts delight. They hold an annual antique auto show on Memorial Day weekend. The Owner is Otis Eldridge, He made this town on his land. It is so unique and a great place to visit. 


Entering the town you cross these rail road tracks. 

Old General Store, and water tower.

Moonshine still

I loved this old coke truck. I remember going to a small general store in Texas when I was young, getting a bottled drink out of the machine. 
(And they had those huge coolers too, that you would slide over to get a drink.)
