Ralph reminisces about the earlier days of Hill’s General Store. Ralph’s memories cover 1952 presidential election, knife swapping, gathering around the stove, bringing his kids to the store, Wiffle ball games, the price of pop, gas wars, and more. Barbara Hill chimes in occasionally.
We dug around YouTube and found the CBS coverage of that election. Check out the fancy “miracle of the modern age” Univac computer! Imagine sitting around the stove in the store whittling and discussing the changes the new president would bring.
