I am guessing first photo was taken around 1980. What do you think? From left to right you can see the Hotel Main, Bidzilla’s Market and the Turners building.
I used to work at Bidzilla’s Market when I was in high school (although at that time it was called Jerry’s Market) I remember this area used to be pretty run down. It is in a flood zone so it would have been petty expensive to get a mortgage and pay flood insurance premiums.
Do you have any memories or pictures of this area of town?
