This was fairly close to where Castos Motorcycle Sales is located today.  There have been dives in this area for as long as I can remember.  As a matter of fact,  I had a relative by marriage living in the bottom of one of these places back in the 50s when I was about 9.   This entire strip has been a very popular hangout for both locals and famous country stars for many many years.  This area has also seen it's share of fights, killings and heartbreak. 

In this photo (among others) :  Vernon Lyons, owner of the Silver Slipper on Sissonville Rd.  Also Frank & Doug Means, and Jerry Legg.  If you know the others, shoot me an e-mail.
