On April 24, 2015:
Three excavators are at work. Only the corner bank remains on the 4200 block of Dunbar Street.
This used to be a vibrant block, with unique shops.
Notice the middle structure with the little tile roof; it included the shops from Carson Books to The Hob. Some of these were the first shops to close.
Skinetics still had (what I think) was the original tile work on their storefront. If you look for it, you will notice more of this original tile work along Dunbar Street.
I will soon do a 4200 Dunbar Street: Part 2 blog.
