Did You Know… what different things you can see in this photo, and where it was taken? This was taken on the corner in front of Stoners Market. I see a water fountain, once these were located in every block downtown. Look at all the businesses in this one photo. Note the sign that promoted “Air Conditioned” in the era when air conditioning was becoming common, places told the world, they had this cool new invention. You can see, Stoners, Mary Moore Cafe, Hawkeye Cleaners, Goodale Insurance, Foxes Lunch and the Theatre. All gone now, except the Grand Theatre.
