    The October Where Is This photo by Elizabeth Grey features what some call the oldest garage in Stanfield, located on Highway 200. The garage, currently owned by John David Smith, formerly held Bill Sloop’s welding business. Before that, reader Gayle Love Hinson knew it as the Claude Love Garage in the 1950s. Claude and his wife, Mary, lived in now-gone upstairs apartment with a “mile wide” bulldog. Charles Connell recalled Mary Love took care of the railroad depot nearby, where she sent and received messages via telegraph. Robert Little remembers when his father ran the garage in the mid-1930s. In 2007, the shop was featured in an Allstate Car Insurance commercial with NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Stacy Aldridge of Stanfield, a Union Power member.
