Once upon a time repairing televisions was a viable small town business model. The Sutton TV Center operated on the west side of the south end of downtown Sutton for several years.
This set of photos are on a plaque (at the bottom of this page) that Donna Waddle has.
Elmer Plettner II ran this business at 103 S. Saunders Ave. for years followed by a fellow, name escapes, who had the store for one year. Claude and Donna Waddle owned and operated this business from 1973 until 1992.

appeared in 1973.
The basement was used as a storage space during much of this time, however, I do have a question that has been gnawing at me for years.
I seem to remember from my kid-days (1950's) that there was a basement apartment here. I seem to remember that a black family lived there for a short time, likely to only black family in Sutton at the time, or for some period in either direction.
Does anyone else remember this or did I dream it?
