Pearson's Jewelry Store, Bennettsville, S.C.
c. World War I
The man on the left is my grandfather, Dr. Samuel J. Pearson, Optometrist and Jeweler. On the right is his employee, James Breeden. Do you see the round wooden clock hanging outside the store. I am not sure which store this was but I think it might be the one he opened after the fire on Marlboro St., for on the back of the picture, it says 'taken during WWI". He fixed watches for his customers, sold RCA record players and records, and fitted their glasses. He also sold musical instruments, and could play most of them.
