Winslow Main St – West Side – mid 50s (color)
Pictured above is a photo of the west side of Main Street, Winslow, Indiana about the mid-50’s. Snyders Department store on the left, then Parkers Rexall Drug store, and the Star Theater that used to be in Winslow. On the far left was the First National Bank of Winslow. The blue entrance to left of the Parker Drugs was the entrance of the Winslow Masonic Lodge and they were on the second floor. The second floor above Snyders was used for show rooms and the residence of Joe, Bess & Marvin Snyder and there were apartments on the third floor above the Snyder store. You can see on the right side of the picture, the ticket booth for the Star Theater which was last ran by Jim Bailey. At one time, prior to the Baileys running the theater, it was managed by Irving Eskind and his mother sold tickets. This time period was also when they had parking meters along main and center street in Winslow. Further north and to the right but not shown was Kent Furniture which also was a long time fixture in Winslow and ran by Wilson Soderling and Shirl Corn.
