READER RESPONSE TO THIS PICTURE

Mr. Robinson, how perfectly delightful to find your photo of the employees at Kimball's in the Herald this morning!  And to see the faces of the ladies that waited on me in those days.  These ladies were kind enough to save out dresses or outfits they thought I might be interested in.  They certainly knew their customers! You brought back lots of memories.  Keep up the good work.
Thanks,  Sandy Smith
