State Armory (1954)

This view from the State Capital grounds was featured as the January photo in the 2011 Springfield Rewind wall calendar. Here’s how it looks in the calendar:  

Public Square – South (ca. 1950)


6th and Adams (1956)

Mouse over the ’56 photo to see the view from 2009. You’ll notice in the back that the bank building is quite a bit larger than it was in 1956.  Check out this Rewind page to see the expansion in progress. http://www.springfieldrewind.com/first-national-bank-1973
