Whiting Brothers in Groom
Now the Justice of the Peace building, Groomís Whiting Bros, pictured here in 1983 sometime after its final closing, once held court on the north side of Route 66 west of downtown. A coat of white paint canít obscure the heraldry of the canopy-topping sign. Notice how the former operator had painted over the top two rows of glass in the side window, an attempt to hold the strong afternoon sun at bay.
