Levy’s Store At Corner of Adams and Hogan, 1960’s

No comments.-

“The Levy’s store in downtown Jacksonville, 1955. Note on the right was the Kodak store, the tall building on the right was the Greenleaf Building.  All buildings still stand but all the names and businesses have changed.”  LS Judging by the station wagon on Adams Street I would say this is more likely the 1960’s […]

McLanahan Amoco Daytime View

No comments.-

Another photo from the Loyd Sandgren Collection of the McLanahan Amoco Service station located at Main Street and Beaver Street.  A couple recognizable buildings peak up from the downtown skyline.  I particularly like the advertising sign on the wall to the left.

“A view of some of the downtown buildings, it was taken from the Friendship Park in Southside.  I thought the park was great.  This was in the 60’s.”  LS A view of the Atlantic Coastline building, I can’t tell if it was before the signage was added or between changes of the name at the […]
