Title Old Red and White Store
Description Ci trus fruits helped to concuer 3XI colds Long before Fleming spied in on molds. Cayenne, like garlic, gave germs a kick; Shoppers arrived with a list in hand, Taking her note, he moved on his way, Crossing them off so nothing was missed, Weighing spaghetti, lentils and beans, Horehound and gum drops, syrup-filled cremes. Off to the vegetable stand he'd walk, Coming back with a crisp cel'ry stalk. Or a soup-bone to make a beef base. Waiting on people took a long time. Customers calmly stood in the line Until orders at last had been done; Tallying items was then begun. Prices were marked with pens in black wax. Grey plastic tokens covered sales tax. Costs were punched in a Burroughs machine; Pulling a lever caused it to ring. Groceries were carried, enough to fill Model A's for a ten-dollar bill. With change to purchase Double Mint gum From a coin machine, if it would run. Upon his shoulders a clerk would pack Oil sugar in a cloth sack, And Lehi flour trucked from up-state, A hundred and fifty pounds of weight. 102
