Uncovering the Past

We have been taking down the paneling at the flower shop and uncovering the past.  On the south wall you can now see where the steps used to lead up to the doctor's office.  Long ago the building housed Walker Drug Store.  Elevated in the back was Dr Webster's office.  You can see in this picture the level of the raised floor (about 4 1/2 feet) on the left and where the stairs were at the right of the photo.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to have an old photo of how the building looked then?  Now all I have is a photo of the pharmacist, Tandy Walker!

The building is looking really LONG now that there are fewer obstacles in the way!  We have two more walls to take the paneling off then we can paint and expose some of the brick.
