Quixotic attempt. Here's to the dreamers of a better tomorrow. Those of today and those of 100 years ago.

Wow, it looks like the little street on the right was closed off and the multistory building was demolished to make way for a flat, ground-hugging box.

And everything on the left was wiped out and replaced with taxpayers. Looks like Centre Street may have been widened slightly too. Not quite sure, might be trick of perspective. Though that would explain why so many of the buildings were destroyed.
