On May 19, 1943, the Big Star Store at 111 W. Morgan Street suffered an early morning fire that destroyed thousands of dollars of food. On July 1 of that year, the following advertisment appeared in the New & Observer, announcing the store's reopening. The image was scanned in four parts using a microfilm reader at Olivia Raney Local History Library. To quickly merge the images, the Photomerge feature of PhotoShop Elements 5 was used.
