Thanks to a tipster for sending in this great photo of road work on Buchanan Street looking south from Franklin Street taken in 1983. Not that much has changed besides the destruction of several shotgun houses (and a few trees) on the west side of the street. The Blind Pig is just down the street at the intersection with Washington Street.
What I want to know, however, is when did that crazy-wavy mural on the left-hand side disappear? I want it back.
