Broadway then and nowPosted Wednesday, October 31, 2012, at 12:00 AM
Jan. 15, 1969 Southeast Missourian
Saturation traffic in the downtown section of Broadway is often the rule, even during non-rush periods. The two-lane, two-way thoroughfare offers parking on both sides and congestion worsens as number of cars increases. Relief of the Broadway traffic situation remains one of the unfinished tasks facing the municipal administration. The view here is toward the east from the 800 block. (Southeast Missourian photo)
The Broadway Corridor Project features a promenade sidewalk. Finished improvements include a new street surface with decorative enhancements, new lighting and landscaping. Final improvements will include benches, trash cans and bicycle racks.

Fred Lynch has captured images for the Southeast Missourian since 1975, in that time moving from black-and-white to color, from film to digital and to video. The blog title is a nod to an earlier era of news photography and the 4x5 Speed Graphic: It's more important to be there for the shot than to worry about technical details.
