Main Street Monday: Davis

This week’s installment of Main Street Monday takes us to our own city, Davis. Eastman titled this image, which he shot in 1944, “Main Street, Davis, Calif.” However the actual street in Davis is not named Main Street.

Can you identify the location of this photograph? Here are some hints: the building on the left corner still stands while the building on the right corner was torn down in 2000. Stay tuned for the location of the image.

We welcome comments about the image including observations on the changes from this image to the present.
