Southeast Missourian July 9, 1960

A parking lot to serve customers using the downtown business area soon will be constructed at this site. Buildings from the Hutson Exchange store northward to include the Brune Cleaners and old Horrell Mill are to be razed to make way for the lot. Only the fore part of the Brune Cleaners, seen at extreme left, will remain standing. The tall mill structure, Meyer Albert Building, Hutson Exchange and Town Pump on Broadway are to be removed. Announcement of the plans was made today by Downtown Parking, Inc., the parking lot corporation, composed of business firms in and around the Main Street area. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)

Editor's Note:

Notice the hanging basket of roses in the upper right corner. It was next to the Buckner-Ragsdale building.
