Up and Over Downs May 1953

August 29th, 2016

Even the small Village of Downs had a post-World War II housing boom (relatively speaking). This view looks southwest. “A” indicates Highway 150; “B,” the site today of Tri-Valley Elementary School; “C,” the old high school building (since torn down); “D,” Woodlawn Street; and “E,” Cleveland Street. Note also that there was no Interstate 74 in 1953!
