Do you remember the Layton Store? It was owned and operated by George and Bess Willey. Their children are, L-R: Paul, Leida, Raymond (held by George), Harriet (on Bess’s lap) and Olive. This photo was taken in about 1910.

George was usually behind the counter, on the job. Once in a while, though, he could be seen on the counter, napping between customers. Below: Tending the coal stove.

Peggy Gardner Laughery writes: “My mother (Vera Vance) found this photo in an old trunk. Her Father/Grandfather are in this picture, but I have no idea who else is in the picture, or the date. Maybe someone who lived in Layton can help us...” Update, December, 2004: A Mr. Thorne writes: “I have this identical picture. The photo was taken in 1912 and my grandfather, Thomas Fred Thorne,is sitting behind the small drum with sticks in hand. My grandfather was born 2/7/1881 in Barren Run, Pa. and married Lucy Kate Fuller from Layton. Her birthdate was 7/18/1882 and they both died in 1971. I received this photo from my father, Thomas Fred Thorne Jr. who was born 5/25/1912 in Layton. No other names are listed on my copy of the photo.”
