Here is a great photo for everyone, courtesy of Jerry L. Sampson. This is a 1950s or early 1960s photo from the corner of Lexington Street and Greenville Street. Sinclair was eventually torn down and used by Charlie Carr to park cars when he owned the service station. This is the current site of King's Work Graphics and at one point, this was also the location of Green's Bait Shop.
The two-story brick building on the right side is the former office of Dr. HD Rightmyer, family dentist, and my late father-in-law. This building was converted to offices in 1953. In 1976, the brick building was demolished to install a car wash. The alley behind the Sinclair went toward the back of Harrods Theatre, Gem Drugstore, White Cottage Restaurant, and several offices.

The following photos are by Clay Lancaster and they show the log home and smokehouse from the Bowman Station farm near Burgin, Kentucky and were taken in 1981.
Col. John Bowman first came to Kentucky in the spring of 1775. In the fall of 1779, Col. John Bowman and Col. Abraham Bowman were instrumental in the founding of Bowman's Station on Cane Run in present-day Mercer County. Originally housing seven families during the "Hard Winter" of 1779–80, the settlement grew to thirty families during the next year. Bowman's position was reaffirmed by Governor Thomas Jefferson and he used the settlement as his base of operations. He was often traveling to organize the defense of Kentucky County
