Anybody remember Skinney’s Bar-B-Que?

From Metafilter:

From 1936 to 1966, the “Green Book” was a travel guide that provided black motorists with peace of mind while they drove through a country where racial segregation was the norm and sundown towns — where African-Americans had to leave after dark — were not uncommon. … The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary, this year digitized its Green Book collection.

Man, not a whole lot in Richmond… From the the 1962 edition, we’ve got Skinney’s up here on 25th Street, anyway.
