 Tipton was a booming little town in the 40's & 50's. It was lovely because people cared about how it looked. I lived in the southeast part of town, which now is so run down. I remember a very nice downtown & so many people downtown for the drawing on Sat. afternoon. I graduated in 1956 & Tipton was so lively. (I even tried my hand at picking cotton for one day during the season. I soon found I wasn't cut out for that! City girl! I had to wear jeans, thick socks, tennis shoes, long sleeve shirt, kneepads & grandma made me wear one of her bonnets. I picked 75 lbs & made $1.50 for the day. I vowed never to do it again). It makes me sad to drive down main & see the Largents house burned down & most of the other houses becoming delapidated. Doesn't anyone care about that town anymore? My 90 yr old mother bemoans the fact she doesn't live there anymore, but it would make her sad too if she saw it. I was there for our 50 yr class reunion. Goodbye sad little town.
