Photo of the Month - April

April's photo of the month (2011.083.001) shows the interior of the Adley Grocery store in Bossier City in the 1930s. Adley's was located at 901 Barksdale Boulevard. P.O. Adley leans against the cash register, near young Roy L. Adley, Dorothy and Minnie Adley. Another woman is in background, behind a meat counter. 

You can see advertisements for Holsum Bread, Wonder Bread, Baby Ruth candy bars, Coca-Cola, and Carnation Milk. The meat counter along the back wall sold "six tasty new meat loaves" and porkchops. Do you remember Adley's Grocery or other local shops from Bossier's past?
