Remembers when family moved to Oxford
I saw in The Oxford Leader that you were looking for old photos of memories from past times. I am attaching information and photo for you to publish if you would about my father, Dick Trudell, becoming the Manager for Oxford Ford Sales, Inc. in 1948. The dealership was located at the south end of the village (160 S. Washington St.) on the east side of the street. In 1948, my father relocated our family to Oxford where we as a family grew up and loved the small town environment.
I still subscribe to The Oxford Leader although I now live in Overland Park, KS. I graduated from Oxford High School in 1962.
Thanks in advance for making the memories of times past in Oxford come alive once again.
As a side note, my parents also owned Dick’s Grocery at 691 S. Lapeer Rd. (just a cross the road from The Oxford Leader) from 1957 to 1973.
(Editor’s Note: Thanks Rick for sharing and thanks are due to your family for their support of The Leader through advertising and subscribing. Without that support, and the support like that by thousands of families and businesses over the years, we could not continue to provide the community with news and entertainment. FYI. This 3/4 page ad appeared in the May 28, 1948 edition of The Leader, on Page 3.)
Thanks for still a great newspaper. Loving the new look!!
