A Glimpse of the Past: Police Parade on West High Street

Police Parde from the Harry C. Laybourne collection

Here is a picture I made for my Springfield, Ohio: A Glimpse of the Past collection using the photograph entitled, “Police Parade on W High” from the Harry C. Laybourne collection (special thanks to Roger Mossbarger for letting me take some photos from his personal collection).

It’s interesting to see the cars along the side of the road and the business signs in the historic picture since this area is somewhat bare now. The first building to the right is the Tecumseh Building, which as been vacant since the mid 1980′s. I would love to see this building turned into something, or at least explore it before it gets demolished (praying that doesn’t happen).
