THEN AND NOW: Cock 'O the North

19702-20081118-PN19-THENNOW-OLD.jpg

Scribbled on the back of a print made in 1955 was, “Atlantic Avenue business area.” I guess in 1955 it was, but in 2008… not so much. The top pictures is a view of the 5800 block of Atlantic Avenue looking south on May 12, 1955. The bottom image is today. The only constant is the Gage Pharmacy which is half way down the block on the right (about the very middle of the picture) and the Cock ‘O the North sign on the left.
