Vintage DTM: Roseberry on Main, 1963

In History, Photos on June 2, 2014 at 9:37 pm

Main Street, 1963.  This photograph by Ed Roseberry shows the 200 and 300 blocks of East Main Street (looking west from about Fourth St.) A full decade before the Downtown Mall would be built, automobile traffic flowed one-way (west) at the time.  Note the businesses along Main Street: the tall building to the right was Miller & Rhoads.  Arthur’s Grill is a few doors down.  The Paramount Theater had an enormous vertical sign back then.  More of Ed Roseberry’s vintage photographs can be seen at an upcoming slideshow on June 11 at C’ville Coffee.  Details at www.cvilleimages.com
