Main Street El Dorado (before & after)

Main Street El Dorado
(Before and After)

The change in Main
From dirt to black-top
The need for improvement
You just canít stop.

This later photo
My mom took with her Kodak 116
High atop a building
Down on south main.

You can see
The paved street below
New fancy street lamps
All in a row.

No more dust
Merchant doors open wide
Fresh air is
Wafting inside.

Horses and buggies
Are now gone
You see only cars
El Doradoís "movin on"
