A Treasure Trove of Old Roanoke Pictures
I started looking for a Christmas card image today and ran across this incredible collection of old photos and postcards of Roanoke. WARNING: If you start to look at this, you'll be out of commission for hours. The image reproduced above is from page 77; it depicts Campbell Avenue and Jefferson Street, looking south, in 1932. If you click on the picture you will get an enlargement. Note the Colonial American Bank at 204 South Jefferson Street, with clock.
