A huge round of applause to readers steelydan, mike fromang, srca1941, and George for helping to identify a vintage “Broken Sidewalk” from the University of Louisville Photographic Archives. The mystery location was revealed as East Jefferson Street looking west from about the Chestnut Street Connector. The only building still standing in the photo is the Deco tire store on the right side that’s now Fresh Start Growers. Here’s a new sidewalk photo ready for identification in the comments.

And we’re back. Congratulations to Big Bad Bill from the Ville for correctly identifying our last sidewalk photo as Shelby Street looking north toward East Chestnut Street in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood. This time, we have a real challenge for our mystery sidewalk. I spotted this photo labeled “Broken sidewalk, Louisville, Kentucky” while perusing the University of Louisville’s Photographic Archives which didn’t have a location specified and decided to bring it to all of you. I don’t know it’s location or what buildings still remain, but perhaps you do. There are a few clues on UL’s photo page. Discuss your guesses in the comments below.
