'Pitchur Show' was held at Barnett Crossroads


August 23, 2018

Circa 1950, A.D. Kelly School in Wallace, Alabama. The "Pitchur Show" was held in the auditorium. Mr. Bill Grissett made his regular run on our route to haul us to the school house on Friday nights. Ride cost a dime, "Pitchur Show" cost a dime and a "cocolar" cost a nickel. Life was really, really good back then.

I cannot tell you how our school got a film projector and screen. Our Principal, Mr. B. G. Tew somehow gave our communities of Wallace, Barnett Crossroads, Wildfork and others something wonderful to experience just like our contemporaries from Brewton, Flomaton and Atmore had.
