This photograph (undated, but we’re pretty certain from sometime in the 1980s) shows the 200 block of East Main Street on the Downtown Mall. Although an easily recognizable part of the DTM, much has changed in the three decades since this photo was taken. Stacy’s Music, a long-time C’ville business, continues to thrive at their current location in Rio Hill Shopping Center. 29News is now on Market Street in the old Albemarle Motors building. And the Paramount Theater has indeed risen from the ashes after being dark for 30 years. Vintage DTM is produced by Steve Trumbull of C’ville Images (www.cvillimages.com)
