A Walk Through Time- Downtown Parrish

This photo from the late 1940s/early 1950s was taken in downtown Parrish. On the left was (Doc) Snow’s Drugstore and the Parrish Theatre, and an unknown dry cleaners business next to it. In the center was Bob Jones’ Service Station. The building in the the far back of the photo was the Ford Motor Company (Winn Brothers Building). To the right (not visible here) was the Parrish Cafe (known later as McMillan’s Cafe.) The Shell sign was a gas station and bus stop for Missala bus lines, owned by then Mayor Waldrop. A man named Mr. Gray owned a barber shop behind the Shell service station.

Thanks to Mike Earnest of Case Knife Outlet in Parrish for the photo, and to Hugh Plylar and Mike Earnest for providing the information.
