Due to the public library being closed this week, I am not able to bring you the usual Looking Back column. Instead, I thought you may enjoy a couple of main street sights from yesteryear.
Here is the corner of Atlantic and East 6th Street, looking south, in 1938.
Looking north on Atlantic, from the middle of East 5th to the corner of East 6th Street, in 1947. One can notice in both postcards, a front angle and a corner angle, of the Merchants Hotel on the corner of East 6th Street.
What a difference between store fronts and cars within a nine year span.
Postcards borrowed from my personal collection of Morris postcards.
