1939 ... The little girl is Elizabeth Snyder Duncan, a regular contributor to HazardKentucky.com and WSGS.com. Hazard has several new stores in 1939 - the Firestone Auto and Supply Company opened on High Street in the Taulbee Building and is managed by William Sousley, formerly of Lexington. The Western Auto Store opened at 210 Main Street a few months ago, owned by Walker Taylor and Ernest Evans. The Leader Store also opened in the old Perry County State Bank Building and is operated by Max Mazer. We also have the new Country Club in Hazard that opened last year. Zack White & his orchestra performed at the grand opening. Work is progressing on new homes in the Woodland Park section of Hazard. The six homes should be completed soon. L. O. Davis is in charge of the project. They are going to offer land to the public at an auction soon. I expect these lots will go quickly so you better be there before they're all gone.
