Earlimart, General store and Hotel.

I'm posting this for Lavonne, who is posting it for Max. No matter who's doing what, this is a very interesting old picture. The first picture was taken in 1927 of the Harry R. Cannon General Merchandise Store. This was the first Earlimart Post Office, it was located in the southwest corner of the store until 1920. Notice the upper floor of the Hardware Store was the location of the "Peacock Hotel". Those 12 rooms were later converted into three apartments. The Peacock Cafe was taken out and used as floor space for the hardware store.
