Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Baylen Street …

with 4 comments

This is Baylen Street 1955 / 6  or later.  You are looking toward Government Street.  My father was standing were the Judicial Center would be located today.  You see a Markham System business in front of you, which is no longer there.  The attorney’s building on the right side is still there, it used to be Mr. Richard Merritt’s law office and now houses several lawyers.  Where the Markham business used to be is now a parking lot.  My father was taking this photo for Richard Merritt showing the exterior of his office building on the right side of the frame.  I have some photos of the interior of the law office that I will post later.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

UPDATE … 18 Aug 13 –  I mistakenly identified this street as ” Spring Street ” when I posted this image back in June of 2011.  It never really dawned on me that this was not Spring Street until the other day … Spring Street in one block over to the west.  In the past, Baylen Street traffic was one way heading North and Spring Street was one way headed South.  These streets were that way from the 1970’s until the late 2000’s, maybe 2008 or 9.  As you can tell from this photo, the traffic flowed both north and south on Baylen Street back in the 1950’s by the way the cars are parked in the street.  Thanks … Frank

  1. My mistake. That’s a 1959 Ford at the curb.

  2. It’s actually 1958 or later. The near car is a 1956 Chevrolet and the one parked is a 1958 Ford.
