Vintage Shirley

The General Store

In the 1930's there was a devastating flood in Shirley. Recently, my neighbor, Violet, gave me some pictures of Shirley, taken after the rain subsided.

Another view of the General Store.

Full frontal flood. There was no Post Office addition at this time. The gas station is now the Shirley Book Lender and the tiny building to the left is now an addition to the back of the book lender.

Here are some guys standing knee deep on main street Shirley.


  1. Wonderful pictures. As I age, I marvel at how long ago 'yesterday' now appears to be.

  2. I love these vintage pics-great to have them and even better that someone had the vantage point and idea to photograph them.
