George’s Postcard Note: The original heart of Main Street was Capitol Ave. (5th Street) – 5th and Main. This is where you shopped in the 1950’s and earlier. It was the center of the state as well as the city. Its flagship retail store, MM Cohn Company was three generation, locally owned, and designed by a local architect in the art deco style. Its merchandise set the standards for fashion locally. It made me sad to paint its current condition, but its high-quality architecture will surely preserve it for some future use.
