Searching for old photo's of....Lexington, SC - old general store

Does anyone know where I might obtain old photo's of Lexington?
I have two books, those nice little picture books that are put out now about various towns or places that have all of the old historic black and white photo's in them,and they usually run around $20.00 each, however it seems that most of them are put together by family members whose interests are specifically for their own family name so the majority of the old photo's seem to have a lot to do with their own family and relations but not many of the other folks of these towns.
I already have 2 different Lexington, SC books and neither of them contained pictures of the old Caughman General store in Lexington.
Does anyone know if any photo's of this structure exist and if so how or where might I go to obtain copies.
There used to be a plaque in downtown Lexington above the place where the old store stood that said Caughman on it. I don't know if it still there today or not. I was told that the old Caughman General store was the first of its kind in Lexington and that it had the first gas pumps in town too. Don't know if that's true or not, but I thought if the place was that important to the town of Lexington that one of these books of old historical town pictures etc. that I ordered, might have had a Photo of that store, but neither did. Surely someone out there must have old pictures of this store. I am hoping to find someone that might be able to email me copies if they do.
Thank you for any help.
