Back in 1987-88, I had work for Brown Transport Corp. out of greensboro, NC driving over the road
mostly east of the Mississippi River, as far north to Providence, RI (the first trip I went to for Brown, as
a team with Ed Lewis, a former Thurston driver), across to Chicago,IL then to Nashville,Tn and by Charlotte,NC to return at
home terminal in Greensboro,NC. On later trips I made was like Columbus,OH and Edison,NJ or Farmingdale,NY. Many a truckload
tobacco products, local manufacture fabric goods or less than truckload shipments items for any of the many eastern U.S. terminals
of Brown or former Thurston Trucking, Co. . Sometimes I left the
home terminal driving a local daycabover
roadtractor unit driving all the way to St.Paul,Mn and St.Louis,MO., many of the roads were like washboards to drive on like
down east to Flordia, and back (in Ft. Pierce, where Mr. Brown had retired to.) and out west, as far as Dallas, Texas.
The 4 columns came from a
plantation house in Milledgeville, GA
that was built in 1858 and
survived Sherman's march to the sea....
Mr. Claude Brown bought them
when they were taking the house
down and shipped them to
Milton Avenue in Atlanta for his new home
terminal beiong built
in Atlanta, Ga. early 1980s. Brownie the elf
was designed by Mrs. Brown
a (Great Southern lady by the way) back
in the late 50"s. It was
to show the company's service as that of the
shoemaker and the elves.
