    The May magazine scene, taken by Quandarius McKnight of Thomasville, features familiar elements of downtown Thomasville at Randolph and Main Streets, including the Big Chair (honoring the local furniture industry), railroad tracks and clock tower. Many submissions included the phrase “You can see the Big Chair!” More than 250 submissions included 224 correct and 35 incorrect — with guesses ranging from Spencer and Saluda to Hickory and Hamlet. The original wooden Duncan Phyfe chair was built in 1922 and lasted until 1936. The current chair built in 1951 is made from concrete. James Harris commented that the chair’s base holds a time capsule to be opened in 2051. The town is often referred to as “Chair Town” or “Chair City.” Mrs. Simon Downs added that the parking lot shown originally served as a pig lot that sold animals and vegetables. The town erected the clock in 2002 to commemorate Thomasville’s 150th anniversary. It plays music on the hour as well. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Brunswick Electric member Thomas Shoaf of Supply.
