  2. It hasn’t changed much. What’s wild is people parking in the middle of the street. Yep! That’s right. If you can’t find a spot in front of Sugaree’s Bakery, and the middle of the street is empty – pull over to the middle. ENJOY!

  3. Im searching for information on a black owned business in New Albany, Ms. It was owned and operated by Wade L. Ivy, originally from Lafayette County. The business in the 1950s into the 60s was a cafe/cab stand then known as The Uptown Cafe located across from the train station where there were about 4 other black owned businesses in the same area situated between two railroad tracks in a kind of “V” look in the location.
    Can you send me a web site i can go to where i might find the background of this area and its businesses .
