The Beehive State

More pictures found in the photo album. Taken on a 1974 trip to Utah.

Downtown Manti, Utah. Looks like the 1950's, and take away most of the cars, the 1940's.

Salina, Utah. The Pamela Theater. Showing Walt Disney's Herbie Rides Again. Starring Helen Hayes, Stefanie Powers, Ken Berry and Keenan Wynn.

Thomas Grocery and Phillips 66 service station. If memory serves, the store was just outside Manti, Utah.

You know, I've been to Manti, Utah... It was the home of Big Daddy Ed Roth.

Even though it was a quick trip, it was a hoot!

The Tomas Grocery is in Sterling, Utah (as you thought, just outside of Manti). It closed a few years back when the owner, Lillie Thomas passed away (5/14/08). Here's a picture from a few years back.

BTW, love the vintage shots of Utah. I run a group on Fliker called Vintage Utah and would love if you'd post your pictures there. You can joint Flickr for free.
