A nice 1935 photo of a remodeled Security National Bank located on the SW corner of 9th and Main streets in Duncan. The Bank was established in 1918 as the Security State Bank but later changed to a National Bank status. The Bank will move to 9th and Willow in 1956 which makes way for Campbell’s of Duncan, owned by Buddy Campbell , to move from 816 West Main to 902 West Main. Campbell’s will close years later at this location.
Notice the highway signs on the single lamp post. This shows Highway 81 running North and South across Main Street. The streets are brick in the downtown area from the 1911 street project.
This is one more photo below this one to show the old Security National Bank building to be transformed to a new modern look. (photos from the Stephens County Historical Museum).

Neil RosserSo based on the way that building looked when Campbell’s was in it, and how it looks now (below) I have to assume the site was demolished and then rebuilt? I can’t imagine a remodel would have been possible based on the exterior of that bank....right?

I'm going to take us WAY back into Duncan history. This story might be too far back (67-70 years ago) for anyone here to remember. In the late 1940s and early 1950s there was a restaurant on Main called Good Luck Cafe. A waitress that worked there was murdered but they never figured out who did it. At some point (after the murder) my granddad, Delbert Davis, bought the cafe and had a barber shop-his first location-at the same time. Grandpa and Grandma Davis still owned the cafe when dad and mom, Bob Davis and June Dotson, got married in 1951. Grandpa Davis eventually sold the cafe and moved his barber shop to Walnut St. ...

Johnny MooreI was raised about 2 blocks from the Ridley Packing Plant. Lots of memories. I smoked my first cigar behind the plant, at a very early age. I think I turned green. In high school, we would often cut class on Friday to work at Ridley's "pulling hides". We would only do this in the winter when everything was frozen. In the summer, you could not stand the stench. The hides were laid out on top of each other and stored for a time in a large room. When the room was full, laborers would pull up the hides and drag them to a folding and salting table. There they would be tied in a bundle and loaded in a semi trailer. $20 a day. That was good money in those days.
