The obelisk is a monument to the school. That tower must have been repaired/rebuilt because the building wasn't razed until the 50's.

In the modern picture I see street car cables above the street but no track in the street. Do they still run street cars?

Dayton has trolley buses. Detroit also had them for a brief time around 1960.

Well it was a nice building in the day but it ain't no more!

Cool pic of the old days but the modern town doesn't have the character. Not much now will stand the test of time. Everything is disposal. That's why I like model T and A s. If we can keep them going the will be around another hundred years...Tim

Is that statue of the fellow on the pedestal down the block in the modern view, closer to the camera and just behind the streetcar and across the street from the school on the corner in the original photo?

That modern day picture is beautiful to me! All glass curtainwalls like that are how I put food on the table and Model T parts in the garage. :-)

Yes, Dayton is one of the last cities around to still use the electric trolleys. Not really that neat though, just regular buses with the attachments on the roof for power. Not street cars.

And most of the residential buildings in central dayton were razed after the flood and then downtown through the '60s to get people totally out of the flood zone.
