Chase Bank Parking Lot Circa 1970


This antique store was located in the 1900 block of Central Street, just south of the alley next to the current Hog Eye Music. The store building no longer exists; the site is now the landscaped northwest corner of the Chase Bank parking lot. This picture was taken from in front of what is now Prairie Joe's.
