A comparison for this week’s Backstory, showing us a view looking north on Center Street, now, compared to a vintage post card from the early 1960s. To stroll Center street in 2017, you could find yourself grabbing some sushi, seeing a movie, buying a record, or getting a tattoo; among other businesses and activities.
In the postcard, you might have stopped into the Saddle Rock Cafe for a bite, or picked up a prescription at Walgreens, or caught a show at the Rex Theater.
Also visible is the very large sign for the Henning Hotel. An earlier photo of the Henning was last week’s Backstory feature.
