Gurley's Milling Co. | 1950's Flour Sacks
With my college years starting down south in North Carolina (Greensboro, to be exact), I remember driving through Princeton, N.C. on my way to the Outerbanks. Not a bad drive, knowing that the beaches lay just ahead.
Although, I wasn't buying any flour at the time, I imagine I most likely stopped in some stores along my route (to buy beer) that at one time or another sold Gurley's Carolina Queen and Best Flour.
Funny enough, I recently found these pristine 1950's Gurley's flour sacks on a drive in Northern Vermont. As one who can never resist a well-done graphic, especially on packaging, I made sure to bring these little treasures home with me.
