    Anon I don't think so. The series of buildings built along the east side of old Fayetteville St. as temporary 'housing' for displaced businesses was called 'Tin City' - as they were essentially big metal utilitarian sheds. All but one were demolished later - the last one was 'upfit' with brick veneer, etc. and housed the Carolina Times - that building is where Scarborough and Hargett moved after the county bought and tore down their building at Dillard and Roxboro.

    I think this area used to be called 'Tin City' prior to urban renewal. I think those buildings are still in use are today.

    Mr. Mitchiner is absolutely correct. The area also consisted of Friendly City Barber Shop(Eugene Suitt), Coleman And Sons Grocery(Johnny Coleman) and B&G Grill(Ben Robinson). Wonderful area to grow up in.

    Easy... Modern Beauty Shop et al., 2510 Fayetteville St. opposite St. Joseph AME Church near intersection of Fayetteville St. & Burlington Ave. The businesses in this small strip mall were indeed relocations of existing small businesses that existed along the original Fayetteville St./ Pettigrew St. corridor prior to being displaced by 'urban renewal' and subsequently the Durham Freeway/ NC 147 in the early 1970's.

    Papa Jack's is mentioned as an occupant of both (old) 704 and 706 Fayetteville Street in this post of Gary's... http://endangereddurham.blogspot.com/2008/10/704-706-708-fayetteville.html

    I believe Tin City was in the Hayti area, and the building shown is in the area called Pearsontown.

    Correct on Tin City- I'm gonna throw out the 700 block of South Alston Ave. Looks similar.
