Durham was once filled with people

I don’t read “Endangered Durham”:http://endangereddurham.blogspot.com/ religiously, but I do like to catch up or at least look at all the pictures about once a week.

The author says, “I have to throw in this picture,” and indeed, I am so very pleased that he did. It’s of downtown Durham in the late 1940’s, and the street is completely filled with people! I don’t know if it’s part of a holiday event, or if people were just Christmas shopping, or what, but I have never seen a gathering like this in Durham, ever. It’s like Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Wow.
