I am a Denton native although I haven’t lived in the area for many years. Still visit family and friends frequently and consider the community my home. I have collected Denton area items, older advertising and collectibles, See attached photos for examples.
The belt buckle is one of my favorites and was manufactured by a company in Greensboro in the late 1920’s (Hamlin Brothers, later Hamlin Belt Co. and then Hamlin Manufacturing). View Lee Terrell Collector Photos of Denton NC Here.....................
