A photo from the 1950’s before the canopy was added. The canopy was added off to the right of the photo.
You drove up and took a spot under the canopy…with the canopy it was a three season all weather place to meet. A dozen or so cars could park under there, with more uncovered spots to park nearby. A car hop came out and took your order. You left your window partially raised ready for the tray with your meal to be hung on the window.
You met up with friends there. Perhaps you jumped in someone elses car for a quick trip down to Main Street and back again…just to see who was sitting on Main.
Times change… then it was torn down.
Now it is just a grey steel building …but the corner will always be known as where The Dixie used to be.
