Margaret's Grocery, Just Outside Vicksburg MS

Thursday, August 11, 2005

I was going through some of our old photos last week (scanning them in with my new fabulous Canon scanner) when I found these three pics that Av and I took back in 2000 of Margaret's Grocery.

Last month, Av and I went by William C. Rice's Cross Garden in Prattville AL (posted here), so to continue the series of roadside folkart religion.....

The store was actually built by Margaret's husband, the Reverend H.D. Dennis. One of the more prominent signs states that, "All is Welcome Jews and Gentiles Here at Margaret's Gro and Mkt and Bible Class". Av and I didn't stop in that day to meet Rev. Dennis, but we did take these (admittedly not-so-great) pics. Next time we're in Vicksburg, we'll take more pics - I also understand that the Rev. has added more pink squares since we last visited, and that they did a good deal of work after Sept. 11.
