O RLY.

Great photogs. I really dig 70s and 80s photographs of midwestern cities, especially CBDs. The 80s was the last hurrah for a certain kind of CBD in many midwestern cities, sort of Chicago I guess too, I'm always sniffing around for old commuter "taps" in the loop and other things like this. Been duped by Millers Pub in the food department. I'm sure just going to the bar is fine. I really dig the "tri-not cobra-head" streetlamps, those are sick sick sick.

Hi Ducov,
You got great collection of mid forties. Some pictures were very unique.
Could you please tag these photos so those who never saw these places before will know the places and names.

Those were the days when rehab and restoration did not exist. Knock the old stock down and clean it up with ill-conceived modern public projects. I do admire the Liberty Shopping Center sign.

Republic Building by Richard Nickel

An absolute shame this was lost, considering what it was replaced with.
