Building where Peoples Park is today (2016)

image number:

P0025095

description:

Businesses in building from left to right are: Sunshine Cleaners (owned by Jack T. and Virginia W. Smith); Bessie's Lunch Restaurant (owned by Bessie A. Grubb); Bird's Shoe Repair (owned by Robert M. Bird). The final business appears to be a record store tilted B.M.O.C. which could stand for "Big Man On Campus", but no entry could be found in the Bloomington City Directory for a music store at this location.
