Remember James Franks?
I remember James Franks only from the time I was very young, and lost track of him over my adult years.
I rode with him in a wagon and a 4 mule team from Baldwyn to Geeville once. He had brought a load of cotton to one of the gins and I helped him suction it up into the conveyor.
His "museum" building was still standing the last time I went by on US 145; I wish I could have checked it out when it was full of his collections.
There is a misspelling in the text: The old auto was a Jordan Playboy.
From the Tupelo Journal newspaper, date unknown, but a guess is about 1974. Sent by Robert Palmer.
