Shepard's Department Store


I've had this photo a few years. I found it tucked in a book I bought
in a used book store somewhere along the way.
It's a shot of a Shepard's Department Store Outing.
It appears to have been taken in front of the Old Stone Building
(I could wrong on that). I would have to guess 1940's maybe early 1950's.
