Did you know…

Did You Know… where this photo was taken in 1962, and what has changed? Yes, this is the intersection of 2nd Street and Willis Avenue. We see Conklin Jewelry, the popcorn stand, traffic lights, a water fountain and a mailbox. Lots of changes. The used car lot and all the cars parked on the street, for shopping. You can make out Mc Donald Drug, just one of the many businesses open in 1962. It is good to see that several new businesses are taking shape today. With Ben’s Five and Dime reopening soon, the first of several shops to come to Perry.
