Llano Mainstreet Reissues Popular Cookbook
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 • Posted May 25, 2011

Co-authors, Phyllis Whitt Almond and Sarah Oatman Franklin are pictured here seated next to the boxes of their book, “Cobwebs and Cornerstones”, that had just been picked up from the printing company in 1976. The book was written for and sold during Llano’s bi-centennial, and was originally a project of the Junior Woman’s Culture Club. The club in turn used the proceeds to give back to the community again in the form of the gazebo still located on the court house square.The authors could never have predicted how well “Cobwebs and Cornerstones” would be received by the public, and as a result, the book has been out of print since the early 1980’s. However, we are very excited to announce that a second printing of the book will be released in the near future. We hope the public will enjoy our “Cobwebs and Cornerstones, Continuing the Journey”. A supplement is being added featuring more interesting old photographs of early day Llano that weren’t included in the first edition, particularly some wonderful gems on the north side.For all these years the authors have continually looked for and sought out old photos of early day Llano buildings and still continue to do so today. Perhaps you may have photographs like that that feature old Llano buildings tucked away in an attic or stored in boxes that have never been seen. If so we invite you to please let us know so that we might include them in the new supplement being done for this printing. Please let Sarah at 325-247-4697, or Phyllis at 325-247-5297, know if you find yourself in possession of such a treasure. We would love to include your photo with our others and give you credit for allowing its use.
