    In the photos that faces north, you can see in the background a series of large greenhouses that belonged to Mr. Hibberd (sp?) that ultimately fell into disrepair -- I believe by the mid-1960s. You can't see much of them in this photo but they look like they are in good shape when this photo was taken in '59. Today on the site of the greenhouses there is located a branch of White Star Laundry and other businesses on this corner of Hillsborough and Cole Mill Roads.
