Downtown Bradley, December 1968

Below are two views of 4th Street/Highway 160, both taken in December of 1968.  The first looks west and shows on the right (north) side of the photo, the Tom’s Furniture and Edwards Company buildings.  The Christmas lights above the street are also visible.

The second photo is taken looking northeast from the intersection of 4th and Pullman Streets (between what are now Community State Bank and Coker Hardware) and shows the Edwards Company building.  It was taken on the occasion of the downtown Christmas celebration in 1968.

Finally, below is a roughly similar view of the Edwards Company building, taken on October 27, 2001, shortly before its destruction to make way for the construction of the Bradley Municipal Complex.
