Looks like the second building in lost an upper story. Amazingly, it looks like the whole block is intact.

That sewer drain in the center of the street in the first picture sure would be hard on tires and snow plows!

That was actually a light fixture with blinking orange lights. I remember them
from when I was a kid. That was before Americans all came to believe they are
stunt drivers and need to do 50 down residential streets and get it up on two
wheels anywhere possible.

I couldn't quite get that modern picture to match up. Number of windows, etc in the buildings wasn't quite right. Then I found this view around the corner. The Auto Parts building is definitely the last one in that block in the old picture. Everything else is now a park.

Ha, but I waste way too much time "driving" around these old towns.

Chris - It's only a waste of time if you're driving "modern iron"! Actually, even then, it's not a waste of time. I think it's fun to compare "old" and "new" and to appreciate the architecture and building skills of the ol'-timers! I really like some of the well-done "then and now" books, and I'm now thinking that this might be a good time to express my appreciation to Jay and Herb (and a few others) for all the old photos they put on the forum! They're great!

Sure can't beat the fantastic architecture not to mention quality of these old buildings. And yep, Harold, the "modern iron" cars are just plain boooring!! :-)

Well, that's disappointing! Yeh, the more I looked, the less the buildings matched up.

Such a shame what America has done to our collective heritage, trading
in old and cool for empty lots or strip malls. Nice work, America !
