Bishop’s Jewelry, 1948, Cairo

Bill and Evelyn Lett Bishop established Bishop’s Jewelry in 1948, and operated for 51 years. They sold it to their nephew, Mark Bishop, in 1999, and it remains one of the anchors of the downtown historic district. Most small towns had a jewelry store like this when I was growing up.
