I haven’t been to Russellville, Alabama since February 2020. There are such nice shops downtown now — Mexico Bakery:
Pinatas inside a candy shop:
The 1949 Roxy Theater, which had included when first built, a soundproof “Crying Room” to the left of the inner lobby so parents could still view the movie screen if their little one needed some time away:
And La Cascada is a…Chinese restaurant:
Professions only, pls:
1940 Post Office:
The Section of Fine Arts fresco here is “Shipment of the First Iron Produced in Russellville” by Conrad A. Albrizzio, which has a bit of its own drama.
El Quetzal Buena Vista Super Market:
not just food, but boots too. Pointy ones.
If you go to Russellville, you have to get something from Frosty Inn (here’s their parade float!)
a true walk-up dairy bar
btw, if the root beer on the roof reminds you of the Frostop in New Orleans, yes:
