“Circa 1956”

Posted on May 1, 2024 by Grace Olson

John Michael Miller says this photo of the 400 block of W College Avenue is likely from the Post Crescent circa 1956.

“I have a very large Appleton archive and am especially interested in how College Avenue has changed through the years… I especially like to see Greco-Roman architecture, such as the bank in the picture, but the absolute best is Art Deco, epitomized by the Gibson auto building just to the left of the photo. Unfortunately, architecture entered a period of functionalism with no frills attached.”
