Many good guesses for last sidewalk photo, and Jim Patterson was correct in identifying the historic view at Cherokee Road looking north from the top terrace of the Parkview Apartments. The trolley in the background is at the intersection of Cherokee and Longest Avenue. As a special bonus, after the click I have included the postcard view and a modern view of the same scene from sidewalk level. Above is a new sidewalk ready for identification.

  1. Goss Avenue, in front of the antique mall (formerly an old cotton mill I believe), looking towards the railroad tracks and the foot of Logan St.

  2. Indeed, all are correct: Goss Avenue, northward approaching McHenry. It’s the old book bindery. The cotton mill Talkfan references might be the wool mill on E. Kentucky at Swan.

  3. Easy photo…I myself haven’t been down that part of Goss in a long time, however the KY 864 sign was a complete giveaway.
