Bluffton's 1960 antique car show

By the way, the telephone booth did not have a dial phone

It's the summer of 1960. Main Street is filled with old cars.


There's plenty to observe in addition to antiques on the street. At the bottom left of this photo is a telephone booth. This was before Bluffton had dial phones. You picked up the receiver, put in a quarter and the operator asked, "Number please."


You can see the Bea Bumble Appliances sign, which provided Whirlpool kitchen appliances. It was located in the Bluffton Foot and Ankle, podiatrist's office.


Across Main are building that were removed in 1963. A Rexall Drug store sits where today's Curling Iron exists. Additional viewer comments are welcome.

Had I - 75 already by-passed Bluffton? If not how was the thru traffic reouted?
