08/26/10 105 W, 1 I - + 4 - 5 Hillsborough Street, 1981

Here's another vintage fire photo. August 8, 1981. Campus Launderette at 2114 Hillsborough Street. Fire spread to the I Play Games arcade and a North Carolina State University Agricultural Extension Service workshop. Things to notice in the photo. There's the old Mack/Baker platform raised in the rear of the buildings. The tiller truck parked on the street shows its original all-red paint style, and before the covered jumpseat was added behind the cab. Police officer is wearing a safety vest, good for him. And there's a sign for Arthur Murray Dance Studios. What else do you notice? Click once or twice to enlarge:
