Vintage DTM: along First and Main

This photograph, taken in the last years before the downtown pedestrian mall was constructed, shows the signage of stores along Main Street. The shops seen here are at First and Main and the first two blocks of West Main Street. While none of these businesses remain today, most of the buildings still stand along the DTM. In the distance you can spot the Jefferson School, now home to the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center on 4th Street, NW. This was several years before the construction of the Omni Hotel. “Vintage DTM” is a photo series produced for DTM by Steve Trumbull.  For more local vintage photos check out www.cvilleimages.com.
