Looking South East through downtown Jacksonville in the 1950′s.  About the only thing still in this photo today is the Main Street Bridge.  Lower left is the old Union Bus Station.  The light colored 4 story building housed Muntz TV on the ground floor.  Across the river behind the bridge is the Gibbs Shipyard.  Almost everything else on the North bank of the river downtown was warehouses and piers.
