Below are some photos of Tony and Jon’s merchandise in the new location, across the street from their former building. Tony Tucker took all these pictures. I’ll have to take a picture of Tony, eh?
Hi, Ma Tucker!
Jon Tucker handles shipping, email and parts of everything else. His brother Tony hits the auctions and runs their eBay Store, while Mom Tucker womans the cash register, cooks, cleans, and entertains all the visitors. Mom also has a great memory for this Awesome Old Stuff.
Insert Tony’s photo here.
The mural is at the traffic light in downtown Fairmount. George Schoen says this is not a literal representation of the famous photo, but an allegory of Dean’s life and mystique. The Porsche represents everyone’s phantom car. The lighting is dawn or dusk, as you prefer. Put yourself into the mind of James Dean as he walks his hometown streets. Our thanks to George Schoen for painting this mural on a difficult brick surface, and for being a wonderful conversationalist and incurable optimist during his stay in Fairmount. George, you are very much missed.
