Maxwell

David Bowie!

Still standing

The two buildings on the left are still standing: the Central Savings Bank and the lower one with the B.M. Morris sign. If you drive up the Google street view, you can spot a couple of other originals, plus gaps / parking lots, plus a little sadness.

Ground-floor makeover

The building on the corner has had a ground-floor makeover but it's still there.

Slice of Life

What great characters! Dapper guy on bike right, man with big cigar behind him. White shirt clerks on left, leaning. etc!
