From Days Long Gone

store front in Mora New MexicoStore front in Mora New Mexico. Coke, Cigarettes, Phone and EBT cards accepted. I made this image in February, 2006 when these signs left you knowing in no uncertain terms what you could get for your money … or EBT cards at this location. Since then the building has a new coat of stucco, no phone for sure, but I can’t vouch for cigarettes and coke or whether they still accept EBT cards.
