Posted on January 3, 2015 | in Uncategorized | by
This 1947 view of what is now the CentrePointe block was used to illustrate several buildings that were going to be demolished to make way for a new Woolworth store. Five buildings in this block, including four of the six shown here facing what was then Water St, foreground, were torn down to make room for Woolworth, which fronted on Main St. South Limestone is seen at the right side of this photo. Published in the Lexington Leader April 3, 1947.
