The S&W was in the 'center' of downtown for nearly everyone working there. The 'upper room' housed several civic clubs like Sertoma and Kiwanis and possibly others. Everyone went thru the line, so everyone could get exactly what they wanted! Hard to do that at today's civic club luncheon.
Slim lived to some ninety years, the last I know of, he did the yard work for Dr. N. G. Riggins on Montview Drive in Holston Hills. Always a gentleman with a big grin on his face, everybody was glad to see him.
There was a tasty little restaurant on Clinch about where Krutch Park is now with reasonable prices and a pleasant staff. A limited menu could be had at the predecessor to Pete's where the hole in the ground is next to the New Sprankle Building on Union Street. Or the Brass Rail that you could ente ron either Gay or Clinch, but you better like the basics or the special of the day. Quite good fixed by Gus' chefs. And don't forget Harold's Deli. But none had the decor of the S&W! All let you eat and get back to work quickly.
