"Magee was never Logan. Logan didn't cross 5th ave. It went north, starting at 5th and ending at Bedford. Magee also didn't cross 5th. It started at 5th , a bit inbound from Logan, and went south to Bluff St. Elm, also didn't cross 5th. It started a bit inbound from Magee, but like Logan , went north to Bedford. Those "parking lot" streets you see on the map - Logan and Fullerton - were named , I guess, as a tribute to the two original ones. Both are further inbound than the originals. That little bit of Magee seen between 5th and Our Way did not exist. Solid stores lined north side of 5th between Elm and Logan. And a tiny bit of Logan (shown on the map) still exists ( BBQ place on corner of Logan/5th)"

"Actually that's not strictly true, apparently they've redubbed one of the roads that now guides one through the parking lot that was the civic arena Logan Street. "

"to be clear, the 10 times I refer to above is total since i joined the site - not just for this photo. Maybe it's more like 15 . but what does the 688 (now 690) mean? It looks like this site isn't maintained anymore. No problem, I love all the photos."
