Time Changes things

 For many of the small businesses' in London, and Corbin, Kentucky.

Time had been on their side for many years allowing them to have a steady flow of travelers from the North to the South.

Traveling through on US Highway 25 that was like main street for many of the smaller towns.

Many of the travelers stopping for eating and shopping a long the way.

 Making it an ideal situation for business opportunity  along its route.

After Inter-State I-75 came through  the region in 1956.

It dealt a blow to many of the merchants that depended on it, for their main livelihood   including  Colonel Harland Sanders famous fried Chicken Business in Corbin Kentucky.

Sanders’ restaurant was now out of sight from passing by travelers.

For him and others in  the Corbin and London area,the number of customers decreased dramatically.

And they had to take measures to offset the financial  loss, that had come their way.

Many of them didn't think they would survive the ordeal .

But things worked out for the better for most all of them .

If you  were to visit these two same little cities today .

You would say the changes that occurred in 1956, actually put Corbin and London on the map, and  helped launch some of the businesses to levels they never imagined.

Such as the Colonel Sanders  restaurant business for example which went on to become one of the most famous and wealthiest  in the world .

 Many  of the merchants are doing way better today than they did back then .

Change can be awkward  and some times hard to manage.

 For Corbin And London, time and change brought a lot of good, to its people and to their towns.

Until Next Time.   God Bless.
