1955: 100 block of North Broadway. The above left photo was taken looking south down Broadway from a point roughly halfway between Douglas and First. Note the scar running down the middle of the brick street; this is where the trolley line once ran. Many of the same buildings are still in evidence today, though the Buck's store has been replaced with the Bank IV (now Bank of America/Westar) building and the Allis Hotel (rearmost building on the left in the vintage photo) was razed in 1996.
