[ This City Directory is incorrect in that the street address of the last building south of Drury Lane is 413, and the first address north of Drury Lane is 415. ]

This was published in the Even Review on Fri. Mar. 21, 1975. in a special secvtion of the paper on EL businesses, The picture was probably taken around that time but it gives a short history of the business going back to 1947.

The date of this picture is unknown. It could be anytime from the 40s into the late 50's So many pictures taken from a plane aren't taken for a good best angle to see the fronts of the buildings on the west side of Market St. But at least in this one you can see from 4th Street to the Ohio Bell Telephone Building. We can add the list from the 1951 City Directory here:

The storefront that you just catch a glimpse of there was 104 W. %th Street oin throiugh part if the 50's and 60's. It was the location of the Harmony House, which sold sheet music and musical Instruments.

The tar outline on the side of the building shown here was casused by the building that used to be there before it was bought and torn down for "Green Space" that never developed. That building was the home of the Kennedy Office Supply durting those same years as mentioned above.
