The Liberty Cafe

The Liberty Cafe, managed by Charles Joseph and Stellis Mallis (Mallis is an old restaurant name in Kingsport…note the name on the building about halfway down the 100 block of West Main Street), was located  where “The Pub” is today on Five Points.  I vaguely recall the establishment, or maybe just the sign that remained after the restaurant had closed.  This 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 card is pretty dingy – I cleaned it up in Photoshop.  I don’t have the foggiest idea where I got it.  It might have been my stepfather’s…I think he stayed in one of the rooms above the restaurant for a while back in the ’40s.
On the other side is a convenient listing of distances to various other places…most of the distances are still correct, since they seldom move cities around (snicker).
