Historic Reidsville Photos


It was common practice to distribute business cards to potential customers. 


A photo of the Reidsville Laundry Company and a row of its company automobiles.  The dry cleaner’s name and phone number are painted on the sides of each automobile. 

This photograph was taken in 1950 and shows the owners standing beside their cars.  The building still stands today and is located at the corner of Morehead Street and Southeast Market Street in downtown Reidsville.

A look at Gilmer Street in 1905.  As you can see, wagons are lined up on the side of the road.  The wagons were used to haul tobacco.
