ED has moved to Open Durham. Please head that way!

This building was located on South Roxboro St and Lakewood. St Mark AME Zion Church is located on the opposite corner (north). You can see Lakewood Ave in the picture that will take you into University Dr. Behind this building today is the Rolling Hills site.
Trick question! This is obviously some place on Mars; note Phobos and Deimos in the background (although I thought they were anything but spherical, and expected them to be somewhat reflective).Time of year -- early January; someone got a chain saw for Christmas and cut down at least seven trees; note the stumps on the right.One thing I don't miss about 'old' Durham are billboards in front yards. Too bad the chainsawer (chainsawyer?) didn't practice on that.
Nice job Anon1 - that is it.Anon2 - close; these are actually Ganymede and Callisto. A violent massive storm in Jupiter's atmosphere actually sheared off those trees.GK
I think it was DeShazor's beauty salon. I remember this picture as a kid. My mother was the girl scout leader at St.Mark AME church and only because of that salon is why I wanted to go with her to her girl scout meetings. Me and boys at the tender age of about 6 used to watch those pretty sisters come out of that salon. Maan those were the days.:O)
Were there multiple DeShazor's? The main one I know of was located on Fayetteville St..GK
Good job anon.; I would have said the fuehrerbunker, but this blog ain't "Endangered East Germany."It sure looks somewhat Bauhaus-esque, however!
It looks like Duke Energy came through and did a little pruning...
Yup, that's the right corner, with The Bottoms in the background. Pic must have been taken just before the realignment of Roxboro St. for the Durham Freeway, as that is a 1967 Ford going down Lakewood Avenue.
I can't picture how this corner was positioned.Was this the corner of what is currently the SE corner of Roxboro and E. Lakewood? Did much of this change with the Durham Freeway?Seth
