Up in Smoke

From the C.W. Witbeck Collection at MDAH.  Street Scene, W. Cherokee Street, Brookhaven. Date unknown, most likely very late 1800s, early 1900s. Note Seavey & Sons on the side of the building that would later be home to Woolworth's.

Also from C.W. Witbeck collection. Easter Sunday arson fire, March 1951, which destroyed the Masonic Temple, built circa 1899, on W. Cherokee at the far end of the block.  
Eighteen years later, fire that destroyed two five and dimes side by side: Morgan & Lindsey and F.W. Woolworth's, early 1969.
