It is certainly interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon.

Milton's was a well known fixture in Chapel Hill, right across from Julian's, owned by his brother, Mr. Maurice. Julian's was the high end store, Milton's was where scholarship students such as myself could afford to shop. Styles were "eclectic", as I think he bid on job lots of what was available.

Mr. Milton was the father of Alexander Julian
