Misc Photos From The 50s
North Summers Street
Charleston & St Francis parkings buildings
North Brooks Street
North end of Brooks St. in the early 60s. Summers Market is on the right (Would later become the Grand Palace) and Smith Street is further to the right out of frame. This entire area is now owned by the Kanawha County Ambulance Authority, and is directly across from Appalachian Power Park.
Lee Street Near Fruth School
This photo was taken in the early 60s on Lee Street. That's the old Fruth School on the right. Today it's a parking lot and this old apartment building has made way for a Bank. Through the parking lot also on the right you can see the top of Lucenti's Boat Sales that sat on Washington Street where another bank building now stands. Let's blow this photo up and take a closer look......
511 Washington Street W.
This photo was taken on Washington Street West at Greendale. The auto shop on the right was R.M Dodge Garage, a pretty well known garage. Look closely and you will see the top of Lincoln Elementary School in the left corner.
The buildings in the first photo would have sat just to the middle and rear of this building.
