    While taking a tour of some of the pictures this morning saw a house on Walker St. Yelled here is a house on Walker St! Reconized it right off. My Granny lived just across the street from it.

    She lived in the first house on the left going in from Lyon St.up on the hill. And to be sure it sat right next to the store at 416 Walker St. That store was built in the late 40's early 50's.A man by the name Flowers built the store and I would go there almost every morning to get Granny a BC powder and small coke.That store was a great place to shop for penny candy. Ah what memories that brought back. Thanks for the Memories!

    My grandmother, Mrs, H.B. {Carrie} Bennett ran a grocery store in this building, after moving from selling drinks and can goods from her home on Walker St. I think that this would have been sometime between 1948 and 1951.

Multiple surveys - including the one that produced this photo just prior to the building's demolition - describe this brick-faced building as a current or former grocery store.  The 1960 edition of Hill's Durham City Directory lists a C. E. Flowers grocer at this address.
