Downtown Grid

October 7th, 2011, 12:00H · Topics: Aerials, Around Town · Print

Looking straight down on the Eastern side of downtown Jacksonville with Main Street being the top street running from one side of the frame to the other and Duval Street dividing the frame in half top to bottom.  I’m guessing this is from the mid 1950′s although I can’t really see the cars to give me a more accurate clue.  The frame below is an enlargement of the six blocks around Main Street at the top of the frame in the area where the downtown library is now located.  Lots of changes there.
