Thanks to Dan's comment on my previous post, I dug out some old photos I took of downtown Fredericksburg, circa 1981. Here's a shot of the back of the store Dan mentioned, Lowery & Cox. I guess guns really do go with everything.

The old Victoria Theater on Caroline, now the back entrance of the Fredericksburg Baptist Church.

Shelton's Shoe Repair. You don't see that many shoe repair places around these days, now that shoes are considered disposable.

Some things don't change that much, after all. Crismond's Shoes is still at its original spot on Caroline Street. Parker's Barber Shop is where Basil's is now (or was, since Basil's recently closed down). Two doors to the right is the old Colonial Theater, now "The Galleria." According to the poster, they were showing Cheech & Chong's Nice Dreams. I don't know what the occasion was, but bluegrass on a flatbed truck on Caroline Street, courtesy of Picker's Supply, has to be a good thing.
