Evans Foodway, Kerrville, mid-1960s

My parents came to Kerrville when the grocery chain for which my father worked, Evans Foodway, moved their headquarters here.  Dad, armed with an advertising degree from the University of Texas, directed the chain's advertising campaigns.  I vaguely remember shopping at this store with my mother when I was little.  The building still exists; it's the Fine Medical Center at Five Points, though I think the "medical" has been largely replaced by other tenants.

  1. I remember shopping at Evans a few times, and I remember when I was as slender as all the men are in the second photo - oh if only that were still true.
