906Forbes, originally uploaded by HokieBurgh.

Here's a shot of Forbes Ave (Forbes St. at the time) from 1952. It looks into town, toward the courthouse/old jail. These days you can also see Oxford center (view below). The building on the left no longer exists, all that remains these days is a retaining wall. Look closely on the window of the building to the left, it appears to say .....Trouser Co. What a tremendous and forgotten word.
