Ben Franklin Store – From the Archives

This black and white image by an unlisted photographer (potentially Johnny Cannon) shows the storefront of a Ben Franklin. Ben Franklin is a low price “five and dime” store that featured a variety of wares but especially arts and crafts supplies. The words “Low Prices” are painted in the windows to the far left and second from the door on the right. Four 1950s style sedans are parked outside of the store. The white vehicle is a 1957 Ford. A puddle of water sits in the back half of the parking lot.
