Ousler Sandwiches, a more-than-a-century-old business in Birmingham, recently announced it was moving from its Mountain Brook location to nearby Lane Parke sometime in the spring. Ousler was initially a wholesale sandwich shop, and this photo from the 1940s shows a longtime employee named Dudley by a delivery vehicle. Dana Ousler sold the business to another longtime employee, Christine Elmore, in 1953, and the company is still in her family. She was succeeded by her son and daughter-in-law, Bill and Becky Elmore, and after the move to the new location, their daughter and son-in-law, LeAnn and Chris Wood, will be the new owners.
