These pictures aren’t the best quality, but it gives you an idea of the transformation of Center Street over the years. The first image is of Center Street (looking down at Mashell).

You can see on the left the back of the Red and White store, which is now a parking lot next to Kirk’s Pharmacy.

The next shot, taken much earlier (early 1900s) shows the same store on the left, as well as Christensen’s Hardware store and saloon.
