Title

734 Dixie Hwy View out front window, 1951

Description

View from the front window of 734 Dixie Highway (formerly South 18th Street) south of Broadway looking east, 1951. As late as the early 1950s the area was a viable neighborhood of residences, businesses, and organizations. Within a few years the entire area was razed to make way for the Philip Morris industrial complex. Since closed and itself razed, the area today is a vacant lot awaiting new development.
