I was looking for a particular photo the other day, and ran across this one.
The year is 1993 and that year Roger Hull (here on the left), Marcia Hoak and a merry band of volunteers spearheaded the planting of trees along State Street between 14th and 17th in a program they called State Street Renewal. We’ve been noticing the last few years that the trees have grown quite tall and are beginning to really make a difference in the way the street looks. Just for fun I went to look at the same spot today and the tree is so big I’d have to stand in the middle of the street to get the photo..and cars were coming! So, here’s the same view in 2010:
But look how great the house looks (now a law office, then a group home)!!! It just does your heart good, no?
