    I love how the trees fill in this streetscape compared to the 1920's, however the addition of the car clutter is unfortunate.

    Nice to see Durham High in the rear of the older photo. I can only imagine what it would be like to walk to school.

    The big block looks like some kind of monster Christmas ornament on that one tree :-)

    That looks like Schelp in the street; can anyone verify that he has a purple shirt?

    Just documenting this for future generations, you know. Some future historian is bound to say, "I wonder who that person in the purple shirt was?"
