locked Re: Sands And Company

I am glad to see this.  For some time now I have been trying to find something on Sands & Co., with no luck.  I remember them in Knoxville in the mid 60's, and in '68 when I went to Bham as Switchman on the Frisco, I found the Sands at the East End of Terminal Station (small bldg), and bought a good Star Lantern and gloves there.  Apparently later events merged the two companies as Sands was found on the Western Lines as well.  But Sands seems to be lost in history, until now.  Thanks.
