While searching archived and historical documents on my grandmother, Leola Askew, I came across more information on my grandfather, Lish.

1950 U.S. City Directory

In the 1950 U.S. City Directory, Lish Askew is listed as working as an “ice pdlr.”  I’m making an assumption that this means that he was an ice peddler – someone that delivered ice for an ice plant/factory.

1957 U.S. City Directory

In the 1957 U.S. City Directory, Lish worked as a Porter for Chick Barron, Inc.

Chick Barron, Inc. was a Studebaker dealership located at 121 Central Avenue in Atlanta, GA.  It was established in 1954.
