Downtown…where all the lights are bright!

This photograph is of downtown Crawfordsville in 1965. It was at the back of the 1965 yearbook along with supporters’ advertising.

I love this image as it shows our downtown in its vibrant heyday. Before big box stores. This was a time when you might walk in to a store to buy a pair of pants and the shopkeeper knew your name, your size and your likes/dislikes.

Since I enjoyed this image so much, I thought perhaps you might enjoy it as well…
