Friday Night Junkies At The Crescent

Record #:
A group of children called Junkies lived in the two-block section of Seventh Eighth streets in Statesville in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Every Friday, the Junkies assembled at the junkyard on Seventh Street and the gully on Eighth Street to gather scraps of metal from old automobiles. Even if the Junkies received only a dime for all of their hard work, they were pleased because it was enough to get them into the Crescent Movie House, which featured western films.
