Yesterday's post about the alley off of Lewis Street resulted in a wonderfully informative comment from Nollie W. Neill, Jr. whose family had a business in that alley. His family's foundry was Glascock which moved to West Lee Street (Glascock Stove & Manufacturing Co.). He also wrote that a tornado on April 2, 1936 damaged and destroyed many of the buildings in the Lewis Street/South Elm area.
We'll try our luck today and post a photo of the Southside Hardware Company buildings from the back, the MLK, Jr. Drive side. The other side of the buildings faces South Elm Street, a block up from yesterday's post. For now, we can only show the signage as Google searches aren't resulting in any information. There is a Southside Hardware in High Point. Does anyone know if they are related?
