 "Traveling the back roads years ago, one would happen across a tiny grocery store around every other bend in the road or over the next rise. Even today, these picturesque treasures can still be found. Wood siding deeply scarred by grain and rot and weathered a beautiful silver gray. Rusted tin roofing sheets all but covering the original wood shakes. Front porch sagging and with a decided lean. And as though in staunch defiance to this earthly appeal are a multitude of colorful metal signs plastered everywhere advertising the contents of the interior: colas, soaps, cigarettes, remedies, staples, and clothing." (Introduction from original 1980's advertising in the NG&SL Gazette magazine)

This version of The Grocery is a re-offering of the very first O scale "Back Road" series. It is a very small  store that Tom Yorke felt captured the essence of the prototype beautifully. In the early 1900's my Grandmother's Father had a similar, small grocery store that also had a room in the back that her Uncle, Doctor Green would see patients who come in from the area of Two Egg, Florida also known as Allison, Florida. There was the Allison Lumber Mill which employed many of the locals and when the lumber business dried up in 1921, Great Grand Pa James Nichols literally move most of the Two Egg population which consisted of about 300 of his immediate family including Nana & her 11 brothers and sisters  to St. Petersburg, Florida in 1922.
