BRIEF NOTES:

1) The Bowling Alley where today the long-vacant America Furniture Store is at 2004 MLK Jr. Avenue. Speculation is it will be reincarnated in some form or another as a restaurant. The property is currently owned by the FAR SE Family Strengthening Collaborative.

2) The presence of Curtis Brothers Furniture store — their warehouse and showroom. Remember, in 1959 they erected the “Big Chair.”

3) The presence of a large auto dealer at the present-day SE corner of Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and V Street where today there is an Health & Human Services Office.
