    a bit of a stretch...but have you ever seen anything about the "Sharpe Music Co?" (on the side of the Pick up in the picture above.) cant find any mention of it anywhere.

    just out of curiosity

The west side of the 1100 block of Fayetteville St. was another primarily residential block of Fayetteville St. In 1923, W.H. Taylor lived at 1106. 

This portion of Fayetteville St. was demolished ~1965. It now lies in the middle of the right-of-way of 'new' Fayetteville St., as it curves to rejoin the old alignment at Umstead.


Looking north from Umstead St., 11.15.08

Looking north from Umstead St. - the old path of Fayetteville St. would pass directly through the blue sign and the red brick two-story apartment building.

Find this spot on a Google Map.
