View of the Past: Taken from the Lincoln Avenue railroad crossing, looking south toward First Street

This week’s view was taken from the Lincoln Avenue railroad crossing in O’Fallon, looking south toward First Street, ca. 1962.  On the left corner was Pitt’s Tavern.  On the right was Bittles Drug Store followed by Causey’s Jewelry and Western Auto.  For those who remember phone booths, you can see one along the curb on the left.
