Oldtiiners estimate that the racks had been there for at least 40' years and like other things of that era were 'built to last. It took plenty of digging and elbow grease, and some healthy lugs with highway equipment to Wrest the old posts from their cement bases four feet belmv the ground. Whoever put them there made .certain that Old Dobbin was going to stay where you put Mm and not bolt at the sight of. a horseless carriage. Who knows? In another 40 years, local merchants may level! roo'fs so that Farmer Brown, Ma Brown and the kids will have a place to park their helicopter when they buzz into town for the groceries.
