Description
Northeast corner of Hill Street and 7th Street. The building at the corner of the intersection is The Owl Drug Co., and above it, Weaver-Jackson Co. Beauty Shop and instruction school. Several smaller storefronts are to the right, among them: Stunning Hat Co.; Fuller & Brown Opticians; J.P. Tait Jeweler; Bellman Clothing Co., and Bullock's Department Store. Bullock's was built in 1906 by Parkinson & Bergstrom and founded by John G. Bullock. Bullock's grew from one building to several, encompassing real estate along Seventh, surrounding the historic St. Vincent's Court and up Hill Street. It closed in 1986, and is now the St. Vincent's Jewelry Center. Numerous people can be seen crossing the street with a traffic officer standing on the bottom right of the photo. A traffic sign visible in the middle of the intersection faces both directions; it reads "No left turn".
