Joe and Elizabeth built this corner store.
The REO was purchased from a
traveling salesman during the depression.
Joe used the REO
put a board in the back and picked up
produce and meat for the store.
The REO was stored in this little shed, just big enough for the car behind the grocery store.
The REO was stored in the little shed that you can see behind the grocery store and the garage.
The REO was taken out of the shed in 2012
after 53 years of being stored away.
