Forgive me if I've offered this photo before, but to me, you can't beat a good view of the downtown, regardless of the era. This comes from September 1955 and is courtesy of the Appleton Post-Crescent. I've compared this to the 1958 color version that headlines this blog and besides the parked cars and traffic, there is little change in those three years, save for a sign change at the Ace Bar from Schlitz to Pabst, adding another sign to the Coffee Shop announcing that it is air conditioned, the removal of the hanging Rexall sign in front of Hidde's Pharmacy and the addition of a Walgreens agency sign, and the bold lettering for Tuchscherer's shoe store. Lots to see if you look closely enough. Why, it's almost like one of those "can you spot the changes" puzzles. I'm sure I missed something. Readers?
