Cash grovery on wheelsCash Grocery Cars (636 Beech) were actual grocery stores on wheels! The cars ran routes around town, like a city bus, folks would flag them down and were allowed in to shop! The idea was owner E.E. Mosley's. I don't know how long Cash Grocery Cars lasted but it appears only in my 1916 phone book and none newer.
