1955: East Douglas & Market. Taken at the intersection of Douglas and Market looking east, the above left photo shows many long-time downtown Wichita landmarks, including the Bennett Music House (in the narrow Michigan Building, later home to Rector's Book Store), Thurston's Women's Wear, Kress, Lewin's, Buck's, Helzberg Jewelry, Baker's Shoes and Woolworth's. Nearly half the buildings still extant in this shot are today empty, though many are undergoing redevelopment at this writing.
