Back in the Day…


Over the years, Carbondale has changed a lot. ¬†Seen in the background is Hewitt’s Drugs, which is now the block where Mary Lou’s Grill is located.

This¬†photo was taken in the late 1930′s or early 1940′s and it features Bob Brewer, who was a student at Carbondale Community High School. Brewer was the first Carbondale resident to be killed in World War II.
