 - Bryan says: Nice pics! I think The Paper Chase was the store that I knew as Cantrell's Books & Things. Do you have any photos, interior or exterior, of Clark Music, 115 Sycamore Street, Decatur? They were in business from 1945-1990 and the place was very important to me during the 70s. I bought many a record and tape there!
