Looking back up the street you'll see the various businesses that lined Howard Street
(now Fair Oaks Blvd) in
about 1940. From right (north) to left (south), the shoe repair shop, Dr. Blunden and Dr. Archer's offices,
the ice bin, Raymond Real Estate and Insurance, Fair Oaks Liquor store (now cafe),
Eddie & Ann's Fair Oaks Cafe (now Stockman), and the Murphy Building.
Head south down Fair Oaks Blvd to the center of Plaza Park and we'll take a look at
the surrounding area.
