Why are all of these Siler City folks gathered in town on a hot July Saturday? Because on 30 July 1949, the Jones Department Store got air conditioning! We appreciate it now, but it was definitely something to celebrate back then!

Thanks to Larry Pickard for sharing this bit of Chatham County history! Larry has scanned negatives from the collection of Ed Goldston, Siler City photographer, Goldston Studio.
