More downtown pics from the past

Continuing to scan in this collection of slides of Downtown Fond du Lac, taken between 1966 and 1971.  There are some great memories here, and a few.......I don't remember that one!

Old Downtown Buildings

 It's always fun to compare 'Before'  and 'After' pictures.  Here are some buildings from downtown Fond du Lac, which really are something to look at.  These photos are from the late 1960's.

"After" with a facelift at McKnight's Drug Store

Farmers Market 1970's

Just sorting more photos today, making sure they are labeled correctly in our database, and I came across these old photos of a Fond du Lac Farmers Market, being held on Main St.
It is just so neat to check out the old buildings.   I wish that the original photos were a little clearer, but beggars can't be choosers.

WOW,  ice cream cones for 30 cents.

Midtown Lighting helps to date these photos in the 1970's.
