'Tis the season on Main StreetPosted Monday, December 10, 2012, at 12:00 AM
It's Ho! Ho! Ho! and a'shopping we do go in Cape Girardeau these hectic days as Christmas creeps up at an ever faster pace. Shoppers are converging by the thousands on stores in the city's business areas; automobile traffic is at a year's peak and parking is at a premium everywhere.
Here is a northward view of Main street from Independence, showing congestion of both parked and moving vehicles with shoppers lining both sidewalks. (Fred Lynch photo)
Some of the stores visible on the east side include Montgomery Ward, Osco Drugs, Otasco, Ross Young Clothing, Lee Optical and Radio Shack. On the left side include Oglander's, P.N. Hirsch, Zickfield's and Personal Finance.

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.
