From a 1913 Richmond Climax newspaper you could get buggies and farm equipment fixed by blacksmith R.E. Miller of Union City. W.T. Olds of Union City had eggs for sale that came from S.C. Brown Leghorn hens. (S.C. meant single comb.) Covington & Banks in Richmond had a sale on “warm winter coats for boys” at $1 each.
