National Cash Register Company register

National Cash Register Company register
No country store would be complete without a cash register. The one seen here was used to ring up customers in Bailey's Grocery Store located in Kenly, North Carolina. It works much like a modern-day cash register. By pressing the keys on the front, a dollar amount would be rung up and the amount would show up in the top window on both the cashier’s side and the customer’s side. This type of register was common of its day and was manufactured by The National Cash Register Company located in Dayton Ohio. It was made in the early 1940s and was used at Bailey's until the late 1960s.
