Moon - Johnson- Stocks
The above house/building was Moon's Store on Roswell Streetat one time. Then it was Johnson Tire Company. I don't know if Stocks named it Johnson Tire Company or if they bought it from Johnson and just didn't change the name.
Not too long after it became a tire company they built a long brick building. The Big Apple Grocery Store was just up the street a lot or two. Mrs. Stock walked up to the Big Apple on Saturdays and bought groceries. A carry-out-clerk would carry her grocerie all the way to the store and into the building and put them in her office. Most of the carry-out-boys avoided being near the front when it was time to carry her groceries - she was not known for giving big tips, if any at all. But I didn't mind. I gave me a chance to smoke on the walk back.
