Saturday is booked, so I have to post early for the Sepia Saturday entry. I love all the wonderful photos everyone is sharing. So many wonderful memories. Today I'm posting a photo of the main street of Riverton, Iowa, a very small town located in the southwest corner of Iowa in the County of Fremont. This is the town where I spent the first four years of my life. It was pretty much deserted by that time, but a few strong souls remained. I remember the grocery store, a wonderful old bank complete with beautiful solid oak cabinetry housing intricate iron grills through which people made their deposits and withdrawals. There was also a post office, a hardware store, a saddle shop, a beauty shop, a soda shop and a theatre. Life was good. I still remember walking barefoot in the grass as a little girl. I know times were hard for my working class family, but I only remember the beautiful, happy days.
