Recalls Dell’s Korn Krib from 1940s

To the Editor,The current issue of Reminisce magazine has a brief article (enclosed) from Harold Lawhead of Fort Meyers, Florida. Mr. Lawhead describes how he once converted an old Ford into a vendor wagon, which he sold fresh popcorn in Tecumseh, Clinton, and Britton during the 1940s. His bright yellow vehicle was marked “Dell’s Korn Krib.” I wonder if any Tecumseh readers remember Mr. Lawhead or his enterprise. This must have been some time before about 1948 because I can guarantee that Jim Purkey, Jack Purcell and I would have spotted such a treat as soon as it entered the town limits.Raymond L.
