James Thompson of Blandburg submitted this spring 1962 photo of 11th Avenue, Altoona. The old Wolf Furniture building is on the left and the old Holly Clothing Store is on the right. Thompson said parking meters along the avenue were part of the demise of the stores as the Pleasant Valley Shopping Center had all free parking.
