Squint Shot 112510
Ignoring the slight reflection off the glass (I didn't want to hang my camera out an open window as was suggested to me) and one of the braces for the wing, this is an excellent picture. It shows almost everything -- from the two churches on South Second Street (at the bottom of the photograph) to the now open Curtis Grocery store, west to the Waldecker Used Car lot, and the entire main four corners buildings. One note in particular, the "Lockwood Hotel," as it was called in the early 1900s is across South Grand Avenue from Curtis'. At present, all of the storefronts on the first floor are filled -- from Jazzercise, to a treasures store, Sozo's Coffee House, Bella Donna Hair Salon, and a photography shop. It is worth stopping and checking out.
