The city parking garage at 10th Street and 4th Avenue was built in the mid-1950s by Walter Lewis Sr. and managed, as well as other lots, by Walter Lewis Jr. The Lewis realty company had a 99-year lease. Thanks to Jack Rickman for the information. The building in the left background is the Bradshaw-Diehl Department Store. Huntington Lodge No. 64, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, owned the building and met each Thursday night on the fourth floor. The property was taken by Urban Renewal so a hotel could be built on the property by Harold Frankel and Nick Tweel. Mr. Frankel's father's store had been "in the middle of the block" as it was stated in their advertisements. Morgan's Office Supply can be seen in the far right. Originally it was know as Swann's until J. Hanley Morgan married Mr. Swann's daughter when it then went by the name "Swann and Morgan" for a time. Thanks to Ken Reffeitt for the information.

While we no longer have very many photos from those early years, we do have a stash of negatives from the 1950s and early 1960s. Our dated, organized negative archives begin in April 1966.

Since December 2010, we have been scanning boxes of old negatives and posting them here at www.herald-dispatch.com/historicalphotos. We add what caption information we know, and readers have been helping to fill in the gaps.

If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), email online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.

Reprints of these photos are available. Find the photo you would like to purchase, then click "Purchase this photo" underneath it. Prices are $6 for a 4x6, $11 for a 5x7 and $15 for an 8x10. There are also bigger photo sizes and framing options, if you would be interested.
