400 Block S. 5th (1944)



  1. My GUESS is that’s the east side of Fifth and the buildings to the right of the big one on the left were demolished to make way for what became Arch Wilson mens clothing store and the American Legion post and restaurant? The building on the left was a Walgreen’s Drug Store on the ground floor in the 50s at least, became home of the State Journal-Register advertising sales office and later offices of an investment firm owned by Pat Noonan. All of this, kind of across from the Roxy Theater on the west side of Fifth about that far south.

    1944? The minivan in the background makes me suspect this photo is of more recent vintage.

  3. tom servo:

    funny how doors change to windows, and windows to doors, on both buildings..

  4. Phil Spengler:

    I believe that the big building became the AT&T office. Bldg on the right became Gail M. Wanless Realtor at 426 So. 5th St.

  5. Jim Doyle:

    Strange how the city managed to do with out the parking meters in 44!

  6. Yvonne Butcher:

    I believe that the small building (current photo) is one of the oldest former residences in the City.
