Aubrey “Switch” Richardson and his dog stand in front of his tavern, Switches Place, which stood on the west side of U.S. 41-North near the North Y, just north of Elk Avenue, in 1937 (a portion of U.S. 41-North can be seen at far right). He bought the place using money he received after losing a leg in an accident at the Green River Valley coal mine at Spottsville, where he was a switch operator.
