    This building belonged to my grandparents, Pauline and Dallas Barfield in the 1950s-1970s, and was the site of Barfield's Restaurant in the 1950s. My grandmother is shown in the middle of the second photo, and on the left in the bottom photo. While the food was good, Barfield's owed its success to selling the most beer in Durham at the time. The restaurant turned into a juke joint at night.
