Rockingham Remembered
Ye Olde Scrapbook
This photograph shows a portion of the north side of W. Washington
Street during the 1950s or early 1960s. The buildings seen in this
picture were demolished as part of the urban renewal project during
the 1960's. (
The '57 Ford and Corvair you see in the foreground
belonged to my father-in-law, John Watson. He ran that service
station to the left. Can you believe the price of gas - the sign says 27.9
cents per gallon
