Urban Renewal, 1970s-1980s

South Clinton Street, 100-Block, 1966

South Clinton Street before urban renewal. The fire on January 20, 1970, destroyed the Paper Place (130 South Clinton Street) and Things & Things & Things (132 South Clinton Street); addresses for these locations came from the 1966 City Directory. These buildings are on the east side of Clinton Street, adjacent to the present-day downtown Pedestrian Mall.
