In November 1951, work to improve the 100 block of Broad Street, looking west from First Street, was completed. In addition to resurfacing the road after removing the streetcar tracks, a concrete center strip was added along with updated traffic signals, new street lights and walk-don’t walk signals. The entire Broad Street renovation project stretched from Laurel to 12th streets.

I hope that you are enjoying the old street scenes. I feel like I've spent a lot of time on Broad St., but I do try to mix in some others. At least this is a different block of Broad than what I've mostly run previously. Are there any other streets you'd like to see some old shots of?
