'The Coffee Pot'

This image of the Mickey Tin Shop, which was located in Salem near its northern border with Winston, captures eleven workers and one of Winston-Salem’s most well-known landmarks, the Coffee Pot. The pot was made by brothers Julius and Samuel Mickey in 1858 to serve as their shop sign. When the Mickey Tin Shop was claimed about 1960 by Interstate 40 (now Business 40), the Coffee Pot was moved to its current location where Old Salem Road joins Main Street.
