My grandfather, Chalmers Farmer, owned Farmer’s drugs with his brother, Charles. Would love to get a copy of this picture of downtown Allendale?

Hello, I am searching for any photos of Granny’s Kitchen that was located on Hwy 301. My grandparents owned the restaurant and I spent my summer’s working there. Any photos are greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I am writing a history of Allendale where I grew up to present to a group in Greenville, SC. How can I get permission to use some of the photos in a Power Point?
