Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Borden’s Dairy …

with 2 comments

This is the Borden’s Dairy plant that was located on Davis Highway, just south of Fairfield Drive.  On the old site, this photo and the aerial of this plant that I am going to post next, were two separate posts, but I just decided to combine the two.  The plant above is pretty much a straight commercial shot of the building itself … the aerial that I am going to post is interesting in that it was before the I-110 spur was built.  Here is the aerial view of the Borden’s plan:

Notice how Fairfield Drive was just a two lane road, and I believe that back in the 1950’s when this photograph was taken it was called ” Pottery Plant Road “.  You also see the drive-in that was located next to the plant.  I do not remember the name of the drive-in so if anyone does, let us know the name.  The school in back of the plant is still there and I believe that it is Brown-Barge Elementary, but please correct me if I am wrong.  The houses across the street are all still there today.  Remember that all comments are welcomed … thanks for looking.

  1. The name of this Drive-In is The Palm. The newly developed Highland Terrace Subdivision was across the street, and the new shopping center there, had Kwik Chek and Ben Franklin stores.

  2. Yes, that should be Brown Barge Elementary school. This was long gone by the time I moved here in 1977 but that school is still there.
