Bailey 1940ish


Lesson for today:

Identify as many buildings in the top photo as possible.

Extra credit will be given to anyone who can identify who the person is working under the car in the lower photo.

And, a free brew at Mad Jacks to anyone related to the owner of the Skelly Service Station AND can provide additional family photos.

How about the square building in the left of the picture. Is't that the old phone exchange building that became the old Rustic Inn?
The white building clear at the back in the photo is the Bailey Bar (Cafe?) and the Knotty Pine is the building in the center of the picture nestled in the trees.

And the Skelly became Bell Oil?

How'd I do?

Pretty good. But there are others you should recognize. :-)

As for Skelly Oil, I only know what Wikipedia knows. :-)

Well, the China Village is there, but I don't remember what it used to be. And you can just barely make out the top of the Bailey Country Store. Oh, I guess Bell Oil is not there anymore either, it's Bailey Propane now.

I don't know what the very prominent dark painted building is. I guess it was gone by the time I get here.

The large building behind the Rustic Station (Rustic Inn) is the old train depot. Perhaps the person under the car is Doc Bell who owned Bell Oil/Bailey Propane before the Kingery's. Many of the homes that are across the river are still there and being lived in. I think the white building nestled in the trees in the middle of the picture is where the old phone exchange building was, and not the Rustic Station. The large brown building is where the Cutthroat and the house next to it now are. The Bailey Country Store was also home to the Bailey Post Office. Bailey Propane and Bell Oil are both owned by the Kingery Family who is now in the third generation of working the business proudly for 64 years.
